Little Men

Review: Little Men

27 Nov 16

Almost nothing is said. Suggestion prevails ... like one of those sensitive and ferocious stories that Chekhov wrote

Those little men growing up, their intimate truth, their views on their world; Ira Sachs captures them with an overwhelming grace and an open-mindedness that seems to know no limits. Without precipitation, the film-maker takes the time to make his characters exist on the screen, to make them more real and close to us than ever.
This bitter-sweet comedy proves again that if Ira Sachs's films do not change the world, they help to better grasp its subtleties.
