Lie with Me

Novelist Stéphane Belcourt has agreed to sponsor the bicentenary of a famous brand of cognac. This is the opportunity to return for the first time to the city where he grew up. There, he meets Lucas, the son of his first love. Memories flood in: irrepressible desire, bodies coming together, a passion that must be silenced… This first love was called Thomas. They were 17 years old.

This powerful and emotional romance/drama by director Olivier Peyon centers on a middle-aged man who, when visiting his childhood town, is flooded with memories of first gay love. Celebrated novelist Stéphane Belcourt (Guillaume de Tonquédec) travels to his hometown after over 30 years. There, he meets Lucas (Victor Belmondo, grandson of Jean-Paul Belmondo), the son of Thomas, his secret teenage love. Lucas, inquisitive for information on his now deceased father, sets off turbulent emotions in the writer as his mind is flooded with memories of Thomas and their summer of love. The film contrasts the wintry present with the sun-splashed summer past when the shy, bespectacled Stéphane (Julien De Saint Jean) meets and falls for the rough and tumble Thomas (Rémy Gillet.) LIE WITH ME is erotic, tender, romantic and heartbreaking.
