Close (ENGLISH SUBS)
The intense friendship between two thirteen-year old boys Leo and Remi suddenly gets disrupted. Struggling to understand what has happened, Léo approaches Sophie, Rémi's mother. "Close" is a film about friendship and responsibility.
With a minimum of dialogue, the film shows how little it takes to break an unshakable bond and how far-reaching the consequences can be. Close is grand in its subtlety; it is both moving and powerful at the same time. “Dhont’s layered, exquisitely shot work, which covers a whole year of changing seasons, is about…betrayal, shame, denial, love and eventually healing and growth… Stunning.”—Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter
