Hovering somewhere between a one-man show and a feature film, actor and director Guillaume Gallienne opens the door to his personal life in the film, which draws upon the real-life experiences of the actor and his mother (also played by Gallienne), although precisely what is fact and what fiction remains undisclosed throughout.Through performances in adaptations of works by playwrights including Jean Racine, William Shakespeare, Bertolt Brecht and Moliere, he has built a reputation as an outstanding actor.His award-winning debut film is a complex and sensitive portrayal of Guillaume's mother, referred to simply as "Maman". "Nothing should be denied, nothing should be usurped," Guillaume's grandmother says, encouraging him to develop some autonomy.Everyone in his family is convinced that Guillaume is, well, gay, but he sees his orientation differently. Over the course of the film, however, Guillaume begins to feel more comfortable in his own skin, developing a sense of his own identity.
