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.

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (3)

  • It's all a bit too ludicrous to be sensuous or unsettling, or ultimately all that insightful.

  • an exciting sail on the waters of gender fluidity that energetically skewers any notion of the binary.

  • 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.

  • For those open this kind of cinematic queering (not only of his characters, but of film form itself), in The Wild Boys Mandico and Löwensohn more than live up to the promise of their previous short film collaborations.

  • Mandico leaves nothing on the table here, and for that I must give him credit. It doesn't all work, but when it does, it's something to behold.

    Jan 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Jean Cocteau meets David Lynch with a good dash of Colette in Bertrand Mandico's sensationally trippy 2018 release, Wild Boys.
