Summary, etc.:
After their award-winning collaboration in Wild Side, screenwriter Stephane Bouquet and screenwriter/director Sebastien Lifshitz come together again to create the sensual and meditative Come Undone, which explores a young boy's homosexual awakening and the turbulence of first love. Taking place at a seaside town near western France, Mathieu (Jeremie Elkaim), a quiet 18-years-old spending the summer with his troubled family, meets the handsome and aggressive Cedric (Stephane Rideau) who takes an interest in the younger man. Mathieu quickly becomes enraptured by his mature lover, who offers him a different world view as well as an escape from his family - a frequently absent father, an emotionally-ailing mother weighted down by a tragedy and a distant and bitter sister, all of them barely held together by their housekeeper. However, as the summer comes to an end, Mathieu must decide if he means to continue this intense affair.
