Review | Le Meilleur reste à venir


Se você soubesse que seu amigo está doente e é terminal… Contaria a ele? É com essa temática que Le Meilleur reste à venir introduces himself. Friendship films always manage to captivate and entertain audiences. Most of the time, it manages to open a reflection on this feeling that, if well constructed, transcends barriers. The way in which the friendship of the protagonists is represented is even authentic and honest and that feeling makes those who watch it identify with the characters. In this sense of loyalty and loyalty to companionship, the directors Matthieu Delaporte and Alexandre De La Patellière knew how to set the emotional and sincere tone of friendship between Arthur and Caesar.

The feature begins by introducing the characters with a brief introduction to their childhood and it quickly becomes apparent how different and complementary they are. Arthur is a 56-year-old researcher and university professor, divorced and the father of a girl. He lives alone and is the type of person who usually walks within the line. It is responsible and systematic. Caesar, on the other hand, is the eternal big boy who never grew up. He likes to live in the moment, it is fun, he likes adventures, especially loving ones. As in real life, opposites are attracted and Arthur and Caesar get along very well, each with their own personality complementing the other. Right from the start, the plot surprises with an event that ends up becoming the guiding thread of the feature.

The beginning of the last adventure of Arthur and César / Paris Filmes

Arthur, when telling César that he is in a terminal phase, ends up getting tangled up and the way he tells it it seems that he is the one who is sick. Soon César and the public understand that Arthur is sick and from that moment on they set out for another of their adventures, this time, the last. The very creative script causes Arthur to be forced to leave his work so that he and César can actually live this last journey together. And in a comical way, the film starts to come loose and more is to come.

As events unfold, some similarities with Before leaving are almost inevitable. The friendship and interaction of the characters of Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson se faz muito presente, porém, não é uma versão francesa de uma produção norte-americana e sim o olhar de uma mesma temática, mas com uma “roupagem” totalmente nova. É uma história diferente e encantadora. Se de um lado a questão da doença é algo triste, a trama faz questão de ser a cada cena, uma trama alegre e feliz. Com toda essa confusão, Arthur conseguiu se desprender desse modo robô em que ele estava. A filha o achava chato e depois passaram a se dar muito bem. Já César, depois de tanto tempo longe do pai, se permite a conversar com ele… E eles se reaproximam.

Watching the film is a farewell. As difficult as it is to maintain any kind of relationship these days, the film shows us that truth, loyalty, honesty and love can do incredible things. The presented twists and all this confusion manage to make Arthur create a new look on life. The feeling of not having lived what you hope to have experienced is sad. It is sad for someone to leave and not have been able to hear an "I love you" from our mouths. 

Logo nas primeiras cenas, é possível perceber que ambos são carentes de afeto… verdadeiro. E que ambos tem seus monstros internos. Mas, o mais interessante dessa relação é mostrar o quão verdadeiro é o sentimento de se gostar de alguém. Às vezes, muitas coisas ruins acontecem e nem sempre valorizamos quem está ao nosso lado pronto para nos acolher independente da situação. A mais nova produção da Paris Movies, Le Meilleur reste à venir shows that it is important to live responsibly, but without forgetting to live in the moment.
