En attendant Bojangles 2021
2h 4m | Drama | 5 January 2022 (France)
In front of their little boy, Camille and Georges dance on their favorite song “Mr Bojangles”. With them, there is only place for fun and fantasy. The one who shows the way is the mother, an unpredictable wisp. She leads them into a whirlwind of poetry so that the party continues again and again, no matter what happens. Mad love has never lived up to its name so well.
This movie, based on a novel, tells the story of two beautiful people who decided to be the masters of their destiny, the painter of their life, filled with joy, imagination and magic. It talks to all of us by exacerbing questions that we all ask to ourselves: what is the purpose of life if not lived the way we want, if not lived joyfully ? This movie makes me want to live my life fully, by feeling more and thinking less. It depicts the story of a couple who decided to dedicate their life to love, in its purest definition, with all its flaws, but honestly. Dependence and adiction to the loved one is not hidden behind a mask in this couple. This story is so powerful and the actors are brilliant (Romain Duris and Virginie Efira are really amazing, and their child is played by a very talented boy). I don’t know how this movie is in English, as I have seen the French original version. But it is definitely worth a try, just let go your assumptions of what life “should be like” before watching it, because the characters don’t leave any space for anyone or anything to tell them what they should be. It is a pure beauty. Prepare your tissue box, you’ll cry a lot. I genuinely think that there will be a before and a after in my life thanks to this movie. I can’t wait to watch it again.
