4 Days in France

a film by Jérôme Reybaud
2017, 137 minutes



Jérôme Reybaud’s remarkably accomplished feature debut 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 pleasingly discursive road movie for our geosocial age"
- Melissa Anderson, Village Voice

"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

"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."

"The actors’ elocutions are lovely and absurd, the sights idyllic, the film's mood unruffled. Reybaud's expertly ordered world is predicated on a genteel kindness, of strangers and Pierre alike, and starts to crack ever so slightly the further north he travels and the colder it gets."
