In the meantime, Mo meets Xavier, a true Parisian, who sees Mo as an opportunity to enjoy himself while his family is out of town.

great romance
25 October 2000 | by mik-19See all my reviews

I saw 'Until September' two or three times in the mid-80's, and have been stalking video stores for it since then. With no luck. It's a fetching and poignant love story between two very charismatic actors, and a telling, at times both funny and dark, juxtaposition of two cultures, American brashness and French sauveness. Not to mention the romance and the sex. A truly wonderful, delicately directed and acted film.
