Going South Synopsis

In the summer, 27 year-old Sam drives towards the south of France in his Ford. He meets Matthieu and his sister Léa and takes them along in his apparently aimless journey. Matthieu has a crush on Sam and tries to seduce him. Lea is a beautiful, young, provocative girl who likes men so much that she got pregnant. She soon brings along Jérémie with them. Throughout the trip, they learn to know, fight and love each other. In spite of a blooming relationship with Matthieu, Sam isolates himself because of his secret : he is headed for Spain to find his long-lost mother.

Bit of a French arthouse oddity, this one. A road movie upon which three hot young things and one older but equally delicious gentleman go on a trip together and things rapidly descend from there. Oozing with sun-drenched but broody atmospherics and loaded with your typical psycho-sexual drama the French are so good at (there's ample nookie on display and of course flashbacks of a suicide) - the most enjoyment I got out of this was seeing four actors who have all had dalliances in LGBT film (Seydoux/Blue Is the Warmest Colour, Renier/Private Lessons, Frilet/Born In 68, Perrier/Cold Showers) taking their clothes off. Shallow, you bet! But the French, they do it so well...
