Critic Reviews for Garçon Stupide

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (22)

It's voyeuristic and kinky and maybe a little judgmental.

Garçon Stupide is the rare piece of European sexual realism centered completely on a boy's awakening. Young women have dominated the genre in the last 10 years, especially in France. So the film is a welcome, though inferior changeup.

Unfortunately, just when you think Garcon Stupide is going somewhere, Baier screws it up with a melodramatic climax and a political message.

Garcon Stupide never quite convinces us that it has a greater moral agenda beyond its graphic material.

Top Critic

Understanding the ins and outs of a young, detached psyche requires careful cinematic dialogue and introspection, qualities Mr. Baier can't muster in his feature debut.

It's the kind of discomforting movie that seems designed to remind you of wrong-headed or foolish moments in your own past. On that level, it may succeed only too well.

Audience Reviews for Garçon Stupide

This is a bizarre coming of age drama. It's been seen before... he doesn't really redeem himself, doesn't provoke sympathy or repulsion... the plot barely exists and there's no coherent continuity... but there are plenty of cock close ups.

i like foreign movies. i like gay movies. but this really went nowhere at all. the only character i liked was marie, and she committed suicide. probably because she was stuck in such a horrible movie. also, i normally don't mind sex in movies, but this was just way too graphic. i guess it was supposed to be shocking but it just grossed me out.


This French film was pretty good. The lead is a hot guy, afraid of intimacy... but also to be alone. The consequences teach him much about life.
