Since he was awarded the Golden Pram for Best Film for his debut feature, I Killed My Mother, Xavier Dolan turned into one of the most faithful authors of Zagreb Film Festival. Matthias and Maxime is his sixth film in the ZFF’s program. It premiered in Cannes, and follows a group of male friends who organize a get-together. Among them are Matthias and Maxime (Xavier Dolan), best friends. They agree to act in a student film in which they have to kiss. The kiss brings about a number of questions and undermines their relationship, as well as the whole group. Matthias and Maxime is a wistful and subtle study of love and friendship, a romance built on the awkwardness of manhood.
