Wild Reeds is a 1994 film centered around the sexual maturation and coming of age of four French teenagers set against a tumultuous political backdrop. The film was written and directed by Cahiers du Cin'ma pioneer Andr' T'chin' (My Favorite Season), a well known post New Wave French filmmaker. The film follows four teenagers - Francois (Ga'l Morel), Serge (St'phane Rideau), Henri (Fr'd'ric Gorny) and Maite ('lodie Bouchez) - all of whom attend boarding school in the South of France. Francois struggles to suppress homosexual tendencies as they begin to surface - he is in denial of his sexual preference and reprimands himself for his curiosities. However, before absolving himself of all sin, he decides to experiment with his friend Serge who eludes serving in the military by getting married. Maite is a more prudent individual - a firm leftist, she is repulsed by her sexual curiosities and represses many emotions. And lastly there is Henri, a cynical boy of Algerian descent with an inclination to do wrong wherever there is a possibility to do wrong. Watching these four children grow up as they adopt more flexible philosophies on life is what makes Wild Reeds such an entertaining film to watch. This film is a story of childhood and the ways in which innocence and naivet' begin to crumble during maturation. A definite must see!moreless
