Filmmaker Jérôme Reybaud immerses us in the loneliness and isolation of the world
Written and directed by Jérôme Reybaud, Four Days in France (Jours de France) stars Pascal Cervo (as Pierre) and Arthur Igual (as Paul).
Pierre and Paul are lovers, but suddenly and unexpectedly Pierre decides to go on a solo expedition across France – using Grindr as his navigating tool. Paul follows, trying to unravel what has driven Pierre to undertake this journey, also using Grindr as his guide.
It’s effectively a road movie coloured by the people that the two protagonists meet along the way.
There is an overwhelming sense of loneliness and isolation that seems to envelope the characters of this film, punctuated by some perfectly observed encounters.
Technology can take us in unexpected directions.
