'Douches froides' ('Cold Showers') is a film by Antony Cordier that has
been marketed in a strange way: the projected audience was supposedly
the gay audience, but aside from brief frontal nudity in an innocuous
gym shower room there is nothing 'gay' about this movie. Instead COLD
SHOWERS is an examination of class, sport, experimentation, and
emotional borderlines that are at once fascinating and frustrating.
Mickael (Johan Libereau) is from a poor working class family - his
father Gerard (Jean-Philippe Ecoffey) is a boozer taxi cab driver who
lost his license as a result of a DUI, and his mother Annie (Florence
Thomassin) is a cleaning woman in the high school gym: they live on the
edge of poverty. Not a great student, Mickael excels in judo and his
life is focused on his sport and on his girlfriend Vanessa (Salome
Stevenin). One of Mickael's teammates Clement (Pierre Perrier) is from
a wealthy family: his father Louis Steiner (Aurelien Recoing) is
confined to a wheelchair and his mother Mathilde (Claire Nebout) is a
woman of the world and society. Louis decides to sponsor the judo team,
buys them outfits, and asks Mickael to work with Clement to perfect his
technique and prepare the judo team for a French championship.
Mickael and Clement relate well and while Mickael is a winning player,
Clement is smarter and understands the intrinsic rules of the game
better. An incident occurs that forces Mickael to take the position of
a wounded mate and in doing so he must lose 8 kilos to qualify for the
championship team. The struggle to lose weight (his body is already
perfect) places stress on both Mickael and his family and teammates.
Mickael and Vanessa include Clement in their camaraderie, a situation
which evolves into a ménage a trois as the three have sex in the after
hours gym. Vanessa reacts as though this is the greatest physical
feeling ever, Clement is smitten, and Mickael has troubling doubts.
When the three decide to try it again in a hotel room Mickael is so
conflicted that he does not join the other two, only listening to their
cavorting in the bathtub feeling inferior to the smarter, wealthier
Clement. But on the judo side, the team wins the championship and
Mickael's delicate sense of self worth is restored for a moment. It is
the manner in which the trio of young adolescents resolves their antics
that closes the film.
Though the actors are superb and very beautiful to see and hear, the
character development is fuzzy and we are left with little
understanding or insight as to the each of the key players. The judo
action moments are beautifully choreographed and the intimacy scenes
are done with taste and fine lighting but with little passion conveyed.
Though we want to identify with Mickael and his methods of confronting
his coming of age, there just isn't enough character motivation to make
that transference entirely successful. This film feels like two movies:
a judo team's antics and a class-crossed ménage a trois. Beautiful to
watch, but the script could have been more carefully constructed.
