SOMETHING ABOUT THE MOVIE
French filmmaker and playwright Christophe Honoré adapts his own novel for the family drama Close to Léo. In the coastal town of Brittany, twentysomething Léo (Pierre Mignard) lives with his supporting family: mom (Marie Bunel), dad (Dominic Gould), and his three younger brothers. Everyone is shocked to learn the truth when Léo reveals that he's HIV positive. Brothers Tristan (Rodolphe Pauly) and Pierrot (Jérémie Lippmann) are old enough to understand, but everyone agrees little Marcel (Yannis Lespert) shouldn't hear about it. However, Marcel overhears the family's discussion and ends up feeling left out. Léo eventually takes him on a trip to Paris in order to explain his situation. Close to Léo was shown at the 2003 San Francisco Lesbian & Gay Film Festival. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide
Close to Leo tells the story of a family faced with familial tragedy, the infection of their oldest son Leo with AIDS. Even with a choppy editing and unexplained story threads, there is still plenty to recommend in this touching film.
There are four sons in this very close French family: Leo, the oldest is gay and just revealed not only his positive HIV status, but also that he has AIDS; Tristan and Pierrot are the middle brothers -- we don't learn all that much about them; and Marcel, the youngest who is very close with Leo. In an early scene Leo reveals his health status to his family, but they excuse Marcel and much of the story is driven by the young boy's lack of official information. Eventually Leo tells Marcel of his AIDS infection and they take a trip to Paris together to visit an ex-boyfriend of Leo's. In Paris, Leo has one of the hottest aborted sex scenes we've seen -- he walks away, we wouldn't and there is no explanation for the abrupt ending. We wish there were more background and a clearer understanding of the motivation of the leads in the film.
What we can recommend about Close to Leo is that it beautifully portrays a family in crises over a teenager with AIDS. There is so much closeness in this family, there are several scenes of the teen brothers sleeping together with little or no clothing. There is some full frontal nudity and lots of shots of these cute teens. (French with English subtitles) by: Scott Cranin
