Garçon Stupide

Rated NR 94 minutes 2005

A frank look at the dark life of a confused and emotionally unavailable gay boy. In the small Swiss town of Brulle, Loïc (Pierre Chatagny) spends his free time cruising the internet, hooking up with whoever will have him, and crashing at the apartment of Marie (Natacha Koutchoumov), his best friend. Part baby-sitter, part mother, she endures Loïc's tales of sordid sex and drugs while pursuing a modest life of books and museum work -- until she gets a boyfriend, and Loïc can't handle it. Meanwhile, Loïc has ongoing conversations about life with an older man named Lionel, played by the film's co-writer and director, whose name is also Lionel (Baier). In the end, Garçon Stupide ("Stupid Boy") is a tight and well-crafted portrayal of someone who's not very easy to like -- or at least enjoy, especially after tragedy strikes (which it needn't have). Loïc's issues are clear from the opening moments; then we have to witness his obvious and painful mistakes until he wakes up and learns a few lessons.
