The Wild Boys
Directed by Bertrand Mandico

I've enjoyed all the French films on Shudder so far. I like the variety on here--might not have seen some of these otherwise. Also appreciate the subtitles because I study French so its another way to practice. This was very good. More please!
Wild, weird, wonderful film. Very strange, surreal feels like a dream, and like you're on an adventure in wonderland. Only problem, I didn't really understand what was going on, but the cool weird scenes made up for that and made it a joy to watch.
Gave it a watch after seeing how much hate it was getting. Glad I did. Absolutely bonkers. Loved it from start to finish.
