Lie with Me

This powerful and emotional romance/drama by director Olivier Peyon centers on a middle-aged man who, when visiting his childhood town, is flooded with memories of first gay love. Celebrated novelist Stéphane Belcourt (Guillaume de Tonquédec) travels to his hometown after over 30 years. There, he meets Lucas (Victor Belmondo, grandson of Jean-Paul Belmondo), the son of Thomas, his secret teenage love. Lucas, inquisitive for information on his now deceased father, sets off turbulent emotions in the writer as his mind is flooded with memories of Thomas and their summer of love. The film contrasts the wintry present with the sun-splashed summer past when the shy, bespectacled Stéphane (Julien De Saint Jean) meets and falls for the rough and tumble Thomas (Rémy Gillet.) Lie With Me is erotic, tender, romantic and heartbreaking.
