Aimless
18 October 2018 | by euroGarySee all my reviews

'Sauvage' follows Léo, a young male prostitute, as he 'services' clients, commits petty crime, takes various recreational drugs, passes out on the street, has his affections rebuffed by a fellow rent boy and ignores his medical problems. It is a pretty aimless film, and as such mirrors the life of its protagonist. He drifts through his days and nights, carelessly following the whims of those around him (even following the instructions of a friend to inject sedative drugs into the tip of his penis so a blowjob-giving client will be knocked out and can then be robbed!) Ordinarily this is not the kind of character for whom I could find much sympathy, but actor Félix Maritaud gives Léo a rather innocent, dopey appeal (even if the role does demand he look like he would benefit from a good dunking in the sheep dip). Perhaps because it does not contain a coherent narrative structure the film seems longer than its claimed 99 minutes, but on the plus side there are a few good nude scenes (although I could have done without Maritaud's pierced nipple - ew!)

Seen at the 2018 London Film Festival.
