Storyline

A brief extract of four kids' lives somewhere in France. Quentin, who won a writers contest and now pays more attention to his career as an author than to his friends, beautiful Julie, his girl-friend, much more mature than she looks, falling in love with Quentin's very best friend Jimmy, who is kind of stuck in his unability of self-expression and grown up under bad social circumstances. And there is the shy boy Samir, exiled from Algeria, who lost his "brother" and only friend some time ago. Samir heavily falls in love with Quentin, but he can't handle it...

Coming out, growing up...being there!
6 November 2003 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Gael Morel is the purveyor of CRUEL INTENTIONS - French style. As with his earlier flick WILD REEDS (also with the services of the two leads here) its all about rebellious youth, angst and homophobia. At its core, a young French writer makes friends with a gay Algerian boy to give himself material and inspiration for a book he is writing.

To non-Europeans however the detritus bequeathed France by the Algerian conflict is not a known or patriotically understood aspect of modern history and will lead to understandable confusion at much of the youthful confrontation.

A passionately made film (know most everywhere as FULL SPEED) that just might overstep the sexual and class excesses it strives so hard to portray with earnest. Certainly a film to see and discuss - it just helps to be French!
