"Auch in seinem dritten Spielfilm trägt der junge Kanadier Xavier Dolan visuell verführerisch dick auf. Er jongliert mit knalligen Farben, lauter Musik, exzentrischen Kostümen, charismatischen Schauspielern sowie den Filmsprachen berühmter Regisseure. Inmitten dieser poppig-poetischen Bilderflut lieben sich ein Mann und eine Frau. Doch der Mann will eine Frau werden. Kann das funktionieren? Zehn Jahre lang kämpfen die beiden um ihre Liebe, um Anerkennung, um sich selbst. Ein Mahlstrom aus widerstreitenden Gefühlen, Gedanken und Handlungen, der in Dolans virtuosem "Gewand" bestens zur Geltung kommt." [

It is 1992 and Marcel Proust is on his death-bed, looking through photos, remembering his life. But the real characters mingle with the fictional ones. And gradually, fiction wins out over reality. His life's only sense lies in the reality of his work, and his work streams before his eyes. His literary characters people his memories like a stereoscope projection on the wall of his room, coming to life in the self-contained world of his small apartment on the Rue Hamelin. The happy days and lost paradises of his childhood alternate with the more recent memories of his social and literary life. The drama of the war, closely examined from the viewpoint of the small circles of Paris society, is transformed into a vast social comedy. In the spreading twilight the shape of post-war society hovers on the horizon
