The reviews here aren't yet terribly informative concerning what you
will see in this film. Though thanks to stimablue above for some
information on Francois Sagat.
The film is typical in style of the trend in French 'cottage' gay
cinema film making current today. Taking the philosophy of the 1960s
'Nouveau Vague' movement's distrust for artifice, french cinema is
concerned with finding new forms which don't uphold fantasy, make
believe or 'Hollywood' style pretences. The many approaches
characterises much which constitute's the typical French film today.
France continues to produce a steady stream of significant gay films,
more so than nearly all other countries except America. Also, a recent
general trend for films released in the the gay film world sees an
increase in hand-held, DIY, everyday mocumentary styles and Homme au
bain is no exception.
So what do we have here ? The story is a novel reversal of expectations
where a couple who obviously have a passion for each other are facing a
split. It's not sure if the rift is intentional or simply because one
partner is going away but the film portrays what happens during the
period when this separation occurs. The title - 'A man takes a Bath' is
a french idiomatic expression referring to the idea of a man who
suffers a loss of standing.
The french setting is a gay sub-community existing in a French suburban
housing project environment. These landscapes are more conventionally
portrayed in France as the problematic zones of racial division &
social exclusion. The film draws attention to the fact that a multi
racial gay life also exists in such places. It shows a 'ghettoised'
portrayal of a variety of gay characters where the main impetus for
existence is negation and exploration of one's sensual desires. No
other clue of how these people exist in the wider world is given. So
the idea of a loss of standing is expanded by the narrowness of what we
The New York sections also focus on the same narrow selection of ideas.
However, 'Cinema' itself, as a theme is self referentially added where
Emmanual's (Francois Sagat) ex-partner & visitor to NYC is the one
filming all the American sections from within the story and also where
the purpose of his trip is in part to visit the showing a friend's
(graduation ?) film. However, enactments of sensual desire dominates
the action we see in NYC too. The body and love, longing and comfort
remain ever present.
The film has a slight narrative plot. What we see is very quotidian but
the film remains loyal to it's chosen select meditation and one or two
of the scenes glimpsing the intimacy and humanity of ordinary acts of
desire are unexpected, startling and fresh even in their simplicity.
The over-all message is reassurance through the portrayal of how key
emotional moments actually take place in our daily life. For example,
New York is highly accessible but seen to be a closed-in and over
looked place in which to manifest private intimacy and it's not
glamorous and unobtainable. It could very easily be the viewer in those
scenes. Despite a somewhat grungy portrayal of desire which could be
interpreted as exploitative and even anti climatic, there is in fact
hope in this film, with a farewell speculation as to the lasting effect
of the main couple's split and the actual strength of their love for
