Storyline

A group of skateboarders in Paris are at the heart of a loose coalition of young people who do drugs and have sex. Several of them are rent boys, including the Dorian Gray/Narcissus of the group Math (Lukas Ionesco) and his friend JP (Hugo Behar-Thinieres) who is in love with him, but is continually rejected because Math reckons he's only gay for pay. There's a girl who sometimes comes over and is jealous of JP's closeness to Math, and so she snitches on JP to his parents, and there's an indigent old man nicknamed Rockstar (Larry Clark) whom the group tolerate as a kind of mascot/despised pet. And there's Michael Pitt (who featured in Clark's "Bully") with a guitar in a couple of scenes looking slightly uncomfortable at being so clearly surplus to requirements. Written by lament

What a waste of money
6 August 2015 | by kevintempelSee all my reviews

Getting a bad vibe after yet another young sex and drugs film from Larry Clark.

just saw this youtube version it wasn't 90 minutes but 75 minutes long. bad quality in youtube, but it is there.

budget of €3.500 000.- what a complete waste of film production money, if they can't even put a decent youtube video, and why youtube first? Well it isn't worth seeing in cinema anyway. But a youtube movie shouldn't cost €3,5 million to make.

complete movie; waste, drugs, prostitution, skateboard, alcohol, sex, sex and more sex. preferably with young looking skaters. It seems to be Larry Clark's fetish to make sex films with young adults/teens. Have FBI looked into this? there is NOTHING new about this, it is just yet another Larry Clark film with the same theme as many others, and it gives me a bad vibe.
