About the Movie

Screenwriter Stephane Bouquet and screenwriter/director Sébastien Lifshitz come together again to create the sensual and meditative "Come Undone," which explores a young boy’s homosexual awakening and the turbulence of first love. Taking place at a seaside town near western France, Mathieu (Jérémie Elkaïm), a quiet 18-year-old spending the summer with his troubled family, meets the handsome and aggressive Cédric (Stephane Rideau) who takes an interest in the younger man. Mathieu quickly becomes enraptured by his mature lover, who offers him a different world view as well as an escape from his family – a frequently absent father, an emotionally-ailing mother weighted down by a tragedy, and a distant and bitter sister, all of them barely held together by their housekeeper. However, as the summer comes to an end, Mathieu must decide if he means to continue this intense affair.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It captures the uncertainty and emotional turbulence of late adolescence with a poignancy that a more clinically articulate movie never could. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Brings maximum subtlety, nuance and insight into the timeless story of first love. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Feb 24, 2007

Rotten: Lives up to its title with its deliberately confusing fractured narrative style and elliptical storytelling. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: While Come Undone has some explicit material, what makes it a mature and special work is its embrace of the knotty and unfamiliar. – Patrick Z. McGavin, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews

Ignore the cover photo….

The cover photo cheapens the quality and talent hidden within this film. I have watched it twice - very well done - worth your time. So much more to it than a summer affair. Although the penetrating sex scene on the beach was somewhat breathtaking……….. :-O Yo!!! :-)

Best coming of age film.

One of the best coming of age films. This classic will not disappoint.

Achingly Beautiful Movie!

I've seen this movie countless times. Wonderful acting, great cinematography and direction. It's a shame that there is no HD version of the movie anywhere.
