Cappuccino may on the surface be about a shy teen coming to terms with his sexuality, having his first sexual experience and coming out, but there are glimpses of so much more towards the end; the effect this has on his mother. Yes, it’s sweet watching Jérémie crush on a classmate and it’s sad that the straight guy turns out to be a d*ck, but the most moving scene goes to the mother stripping herself back; that’s the real change, therein lies the heart of the story.
