4 Days in France ★★★★

Like The Ornithologist or recent Guiraudie, a romanticized portrait of sexual drifters as eternal outsiders. Given the pointed Christian symbology and heavy emphasis on French locations (geography quizzes… and the use of the geography itself), I’m rather certain that I’m missing crucial context here, but the film’s aching desire for fulfillment is universal enough to steamroll any hiccups. Reybaud is a sensitive scenarist, turning most of the film’s chance encounters into satisfying short films in their own right, locating empathy even in rejection. A bit shaggy around the edges, but mostly lovely.
