What are people saying?

  •'s rating of the film Boys

    formally rigorous, quietly elegant film about male sexuality that manages to create the textures of life with impeccably framed interiors and closely observed scenes of genuine intimacy. it's refreshingly chaste, too. and its aura of autobiography is beautifully acknowledged in the reflexive closing shot, a superb ending that stays true to the film's tone without underlining.

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Boys

    Focalisé essentiellement sur la découverte de la sexualité, à travers d'innocents jeux avec un garçon de son âge, voyeurisme et tentative de séduction, le film pêche surtout par un manque évident de distanciation et une réalisation somme toute fort banale et quelconque. Reste un parti-pris de véracité fort estimable...
