Garçon Stupide

Film, Drama

Time Out says

Emotionally stunted 20-year-old Loic (Chatagny) spends his days at a mind-numbing job and his evenings chatting online with men. Then a personal-ad respondent helps the young man identify his latent artistic goals and nurture a yearning to be something more than a "stupid boy." A mash-up of fact and fiction partly based on director Lionel Baier's and Chatagny's own life experiences, Garçon Stupide is a minor-key curiosity with a rough-edged documentary aesthetic. Baier may lose viewers in some strange interludes and an inexplicable car accident, but Chatagny's sweet and uninhibited performance holds this uneven film together.
