Rating:
Not Available
Les Roseaux Sauvage is a French drama film, written and directed by André Téchiné, about the journey from childhood to adulthood and the newfound awareness of sexuality of four youths at the end of the war in Algeria. François (Gaël Morel) and his female friend, Maïté (Ã.lodie Bouchez), have been friends since childhood, but when François meets and befriends Serge (Stéphane Rideau), he finds out that he has a deep homosexual attraction towards him. When François confides in Maïté, she says she is not interested in anybody, but she does have a hidden love for François. The war even brings François brother, Henri (Frédéric Gorny), back home alive, but he is deeply scarred from the abomination of war. How they deal with these inner conflicts will eventually determine how well they traverse to adulthood. The horrors of the Algerian War reflect the conflict that each of the characters must fight with inside.
