About

What if Eric Rohmer made a film about gay hook up apps? Jérôme Reybaud’s remarkably accomplished feature debut, 4 Days in France, is a sly and sophisticated take on gay romance in the 21st century. On a seemingly ordinary night in Paris, Pierre takes one last look his lover Paul’s sleeping body, then steals away into the early morning light. Where he’s headed, neither of them know. Pierre’s only guide is his Grindr app, which leads him on a series of encounters with an indelible cast of characters across the French countryside. Paul sets out after him, using his own phone to track Pierre’s movements in a strange and wonderful game of Grindr cat-and-mouse.

“A kind of ode to cruising writ large… There’s something endearing, if not uncanny, about the way the film evokes universal truths about erotic wandering through the extremely specific figure of the French gay man.” – Diego Semerene, Slant

“A uniquely tender film, and a wonderful ode to the intimacy that comes from casual encounters with perfect (and on occasion beautiful) strangers. A first film that is born from a filmmaker who already knows a great deal about sex, love, and cinema.” – Ira Sachs
