Tom à la ferme

Here it is, after J'ai tué ma mère, Les amours imaginaires et Laurence Anyways, the three masterpieces he directed, we have his fourth work, Tom à la ferme, and he is only 25! This last holidays in France, I had the chance to go and see the film of this prodigy in Bayonne. It was exactly what I expected, I wasn't disappointed at all. There are still the aspects of all his works, like Almodovar, and mostly the presence of the mother figure. I strongly recommend it to you, Dolan never disappoints.

Le voici, après J'ai tué ma mère, Les amours imaginaires et Laurence Anyways, les trois masterpieces que le canadien a réalisé, arrive Tom à la ferme. Et tout cela avec seulement 25 ans! Ces dernières vacances j'ai eu l'opportunité de pouvoir la voir de retour en France, à Bayonne. C'était tout ce dont j'attendais voir, pas de déception. On trouve aussi des aspects de ses autres travaux, comme dans les films d'Almodovar, et surtout la présence de la figure de la mère. Vous devez la voir absolument.

Ya ha llegado, después de J'ai tué ma mère, Les amours imaginaires y Laurence anyways, las tres obras maestras del director canadiense, llega su cuarto trabajo, Tom à la ferme, y todo eso con tan solo 25 años! Estas últimas vacaciones de Semana Santa he tenido la oportunidad de ir a verla a Bayona. Era exactamente lo que me esperaba, nada decepcionante como siempre. Podemos encontrar los mismos aspectos que reaparecen en casi todas sus películas, al igual que en ellas películas de Almodóvar, sobre todo la presencia de la figura materna, muy importante en todas sus películas. Os la recomiendo fuertemente, Dolan nunca decepciona.


  1. I just saw Xavier Dolan's new film and I really enjoyed it. And I agree with you, his first 2 films were masterpieces.
    I love the fact you post in 3 languages (I post in 2, English and Spanish).


  2. Oh, and I almost forgot, in case you want to leave me a comment (in English or Spanish, but unfortunately not French) this is my blog:

  3. What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.

  4. Amazing blog and very interesting stuff you got here! I definitely learned a lot from reading through some of your earlier posts as well and decided to drop a comment on this one!
