It's a film that scrutinizes male bodies - whether lithely tattooed or creased like crepe paper - with an attentive but uncritical eye.
Raw, uncompromising and yet strangely romantic.
Depicting the life of a prostitute in a frank way is nothing new in the world of film. The difference here is that it is about a male prostitute and the violent nature of it all. The viewers' feelings are not spared.
It's refreshing to see a film that understands the need for, and doesn't shy away from, a range of physical connections all of us are seeking.
Sauvage captures the multitude of emotion or lack of, that come with Leo's tricks. There's jealousy, pain, excitement, cruelty and even monotonous apathy where you'd least expect it.
This passionate debut from Camille Vidal-Naquet boldly challenges our perceptions of male sex workers.
No one will fall asleep during the sex scenes, but as much as the film realistically acts out the tricks of the trade, Léo remains an idea, a blank slate.
A film that, in its derivative narrative, never does justice to its notable character and protagonist... [Full review in Spanish]
Sauvage's complex representation of love - from the ephemeral connections with sexual partners, to intense romantic passion - is less conspicuous than its frank portrayal of sex work and gay sexuality, but it is just as nuanced.
An incredibly frank and involving immersive portrait impressively anchored by an in-every-frame performance from Félix Maritaud.
Nevertheless, the film achieves a sort of grace, in moments of sweetness and stillness, when the fullness of Leo's being-be it ravaged and weary-is palpable and, finally, undeniable.
