  1. Brings maximum subtlety, nuance and insight into the timeless story of first love.
  2. Charged by Rideau's amazingly sexy performance as the most forthright gay character put on screen to date, this is a fine piece of filmmaking.
  3. Reviewed by: Patrick Z. McGavin
    Turns increasingly interior and emotionally complex. It refuses to connect, putting the pressure entirely on its viewers to reach their own conclusions.
  4. 70
    Come Undone's true subject is, simply enough, the perspective-warping enormity of first love, as preserved in a scrapbook of before-and-after snapshots.
  5. If the sensitive coming-of-age love story is a well-worn tradition in gay cinema, Come Undone is at the very least a superior example of it.
  6. 60
    Come Undone is the quintessential gay date at the art house.
  7. One of those French films whose makers won't lower themselves to tell a story in a way that is entertaining or compelling.

    Absolutely moving film it is. it's like speaking out what gays want to say and have to feel under our flows without staying while emotions stuck deeply into your heart. Expand

    Exellent coming of age story with beautiful settings and photography. The story a bit confusing while piecing together flashback, is very real and emotional. If your looking for action look elsewhere but it you are looking for a real story about first love this is a must. Expand
