Imbued with a melancholy mood, Pierre (Pascal Cervo) leaves his home and his partner for the French countryside. While it’s unclear where he is headed and what his intentions are, his sole guides are Grindr and notes scribbled on toilet walls.
Beyond his sexual encounters, this poetic road movie explores the conversations and nonverbal dynamics that take place between strangers. With his confused boyfriend beginning to track him, 4 Days in France offers two parallel road trips. Told through visually stunning shots of the French countryside, Pierre’s erotic journey through France, on one hand, explores how different gay men navigate anonymous rural encounters, and on the other, a character study on letting fate guide you.
