Movie Info

The debut feature from Bertrand Mandico tells the tale of five adolescent boys (all played by actresses) enamored by the arts, but drawn to crime and transgression. After a brutal crime committed by the group and aided by TREVOR - a deity of chaos they can't control - they're punished to board a boat with a captain hell-bent on taming their ferocious appetites. After arriving on a lush island with dangers and pleasures abound the boys start to transform in both mind and body. Shot in gorgeous 16mm and brimming with eroticism, genderfluidity, and humor, THE WILD BOYS will take you on journey you won't soon forget.

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (3)

an exciting sail on the waters of gender fluidity that energetically skewers any notion of the binary.

I was drawn into its hermetically sealed world of oddness - and Mandico pays attention to character to a degree that experimental film-makers often don't bother with.

A masterpiece about the bipolarism we live in. A hallucinogen film about the influence of the gender in our society. A must of the LGTBIQ+ contemporary films [Full Review in Spanish]

The Wild Boys is a fantastic, avant-garde and rebellious journey that blurs gender identity. [Full review in Spanish]

July 22, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

For those open this kind of cinematic queering (not only of his characters, but of film form itself), in The Wild Boys Mandico and Löwensohn more than live up to the promise of their previous short film collaborations.
