Cinema Guild is releasing writer-director Jérôme Reybaud’s acclaimed feature debut 4 Days in France on DVD and Blu-ray in December. The film premiered at last year’s Venice Critics’ Week and made its U.S. debut at New Directors/New Films in March, follows by a limited theatrical release.
Reybaud’s remarkably accomplished feature debut is a sly and sophisticated takes on gay romance in the 21 st century. On a seemingly ordinary night in Paris, Pierre snaps a few photos of his lover Paul’s sleeping body and takes off 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 stunning 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.
