Sauvage / Wild

April 10, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

Sauvage / Wild

Dir. Camille Vidal-Naquet, France, 2018, 99 mins

Q&A with director Camille Vidal-Naquet, moderated by NewFest’s Director of Programming, Nick McCarthy

“Raw, uncompromising and yet strangely romantic.” – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

“The kindness – and unkindness – of strangers looms large in the life of a feral male prostitute in SAUVAGE / WILD, an incredibly frank and involving immersive portrait impressively anchored by an in-every-frame performance from Félix Maritaud. Gut-punchingly authentic with radiant moments of tenderness where least expected, intimate yet not voyeuristic, this first feature by writer-director Camille Vidal-Naquet gets the balance between looking-for-love and settling-for-sensation exactly right… Tapping into a reservoir of physical grace, Maritaud, who appeared in BPM, projects a deep range of emotions, going with the flow with such magnanimity that (his) eventual flashes of anger are as unsettling as they are expressive.” – Lisa Nesselson, Screen Daily
