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

TSOU is less of a movie and more of an assault on the eyes
11 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

The Smell of Us, although sounding like a good film in its festival write up is in fact the worse and hardest things I've ever had to watch.

The film is void of narrative or character development and in its place is scene after scene of vulgarity passed of as artistic.

The Smell Of Us, made be questions the entire notion of film as a medium.

Do yourself a favor and on the night you were planning on seeing this film, do something more enjoyable and less harmful to your psych instead, like punching yourself in the face. or sitting alone in a dark room.

not only a bad film, but a bad moment in human history.
