LES GARÇONS SAUVAGES / The Wild Boys

LES GARÇONS SAUVAGES / The Wild Boys

"Les Garçons Sauvages is a fucking intoxicating miracle of a film: a weird, erotic coming-of-age fantasy adventure that probes dark, dank regions of the human psyche without getting too uncomfortable to watch. Like an inverted Lord of the Flies, where the stu- dents start out as monsters and are reformed by an island's curious magic, it tells a story that feels new and very much of the present, in a way that feels tangibly like a pleasurable hallucination from a forgotten era. Sure blew me the fuck away." (Andrew Todd, Birth.Movies.Death)
