Review

The latest film of Larry Clark known for his films with youth subculture. Unlike his films Kids and Ken Park featuring the US, the background of this film is France. The life of boys is full of sex, drug, and prostitution. They pay no attention to fallen homeless men. Boring life, shallow Internet communication, and vain relationship make cracks in their lives. With bold description of teenage sexuality, the director fills the film with reckless pieces rather than strict narrative. For example, he mixes poetic images, phone images, and pictures in a music video style. Most actors are non-professional except a street musician Michael Pitt. In a brisk contrast to their cute looks, boys act like abandoning the world. Rather than searching for the causes of their situation, the film just examines the present. (JANG Byungwon)
