SAUVAGE ( N/C 18)

 

French writer-director Camille Vidal-Naquet’s first feature is a moody character study of a young gay hustler whose tenderness survives even his most bruising experiences. Leo (played by the remarkable Felix Maritaud) is 22 and sells his body on the street for a bit of cash. The men come and go, but he stays right there… longing for love. He doesn’t know what the future will bring so he hits the road. Recalls the pulsating energy of Agnès Varda’s seminal 1985 character study Vagabond, which was an inspiration.
