Movie Info

The debut feature from Bertrand Mandico tells the tale of five adolescent boys (all played by actresses) enamored by the arts, but drawn to crime and transgression. After a brutal crime committed by the group and aided by TREVOR - a deity of chaos they can't control - they're punished to board a boat with a captain hell-bent on taming their ferocious appetites. After arriving on a lush island with dangers and pleasures abound the boys start to transform in both mind and body. Shot in gorgeous 16mm and brimming with eroticism, genderfluidity, and humor, THE WILD BOYS will take you on journey you won't soon forget.

Critic Reviews for The Wild Boys (Les garçons sauvages)

All Critics (5)

A weird, erotic coming-of-age fantasy adventure that probes dark, dank regions of the human psyche without getting too uncomfortable to watch.

[Director Bertrand] Mandico offers something that goes far beyond the multi-referential pastiche, combining the classic adventure alongside with pieces of artistic works such as A Clockwork Orange... [Full review in Spanish]

I was drawn into its hermetically sealed world of oddness - and Mandico pays attention to character to a degree that experimental film-makers often don't bother with.

... it's engaging and distinctive, although it may fade from your mind like a lurid dream the moment it's over. [Full review in Spanish]
