La Folie D'amour: The Xavier Dolan Collection, DVD



Collection of three films from French-Canadian director Xavier Dolan.

In 'Heartbeats' (2010), after meeting confident, free-spirited traveller Nicolas (Niels Schneider) at a party, Marie (Monia Chokri) and her best friend Frankie (Dolan) quickly become infatuated with him.

Before long, the three end up in bed together, but Nicolas, whose primary desire is securing a place to stay, provides neither Marie nor Frankie with the deep connection they were hankering after.

In 'I Killed My Mother' (2009), 16-year-old Hubert (Dolan) appears on the surface to despise everything about his mother Chantale (Anne Dorval), from the way she dresses to her table manners, but Chantale has reasons to be displeased with her son as well - having found out that he is gay from a friend who mentions his boyfriend, Antonin (François Arnaud), she feels betrayed that Hubert has not told her about his sexuality.

Partly as an act of vengeance, she separates the two boys by sending Hubert to boarding school.

Will the relationship between mother and son ease with distance, or will the disaffection merely increase?

In 'Laurence Anyways' (2012), literature teacher Laurence (Melvil Poupaud) and his partner Fred (Suzanne Clément) have shared a long and stable marriage, but Laurence has been harbouring a secret.

One day he announces to Fred that he feels he has been living a lie for years, and that he can no longer go on living as a man when he knows that he is meant to be a woman.

Initially shocked and saddened, Fred eventually pledges to support Laurence throughout his transition and they aim for a shared future.

However, the pressure on their relationship proves greater than either could have anticipated.

Can their partnership survive such a monumental change?
