"Blue in the face."
1 stars

A pointless portrait of a callow, unsupervised 15-year-old delinquent flaneur, the black-and-white movie does nothing but follow him through unmotivated and random occurrences throughout the day, including household chores, drinking donnybrooks with the adults, masturbating, listening to rock-n-roll, an act of dendrophilia, and even murder.

There are some segregated dream and hallucination scenes, placing the boy with wolves in mud, and usually nude or semi-nude, but like the rest of the movie, it fails to take us anywhere or tell us anything. It’s a lazy feature, depending on the grotesque images of animal slaughter and animal cruelty, and heavy homoerotic overtones. Director Damien Odoul explores no traits other than the superfluous and the scabrous. All it amounts to is a very immature and inauspicious debut about the ennui of adolescence, which has been done often enough, and yet still much better.

With Pierre-Louis Bonnetblanc, Dominique Chevallier and Maxime Dalbrut.

[Not to be bothered with.]
