Review

Mike and Kyle have been best friends since they were little. They go to a trip to Southern France with Kyle’s fiancée, Eva. While they are biking together, Mike confesses that he slept with Eva. The two argue, which then becomes a big fight. Their friendship is dormant for a while, but they run into each other again at Eva’s funeral. In the film, the friendship between the two guys is constantly challenged and at risk, then they get reconnected with each other. The film is a witty reinterpretation of bromance or the myth of bromance and finally dismantles it. All the scenes were shot in one-take, which renders the continuous conversation among the two men and those who surround them to be amplified. It was premiered at the Cannes 2019 in the Un Certain Regard section. [MOON Seok]
