  1. OlliFlamme's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    Excellent film that is carried by a sympathy one gets for the characters, by picturing those wobbly affectionate relationships of adolescence and the parting of characters that goes together with getting a grip on existence.

  2. BHASKAR's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    This is one great movie, a masterpiece, and surely the best French movie of last three decades! It is a brilliant period piece with sexuality and politics, and at the same time one of the best showcases of adolescent gay relationships. It centers around four adolescents in a boarding school in southern France getting their baccalaureates in the midst of the Algerian war of 1962, and the erotic tension between them.

  3. Ramon Colom's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    Esta es una de mis películas preferidas de Techiné. Es el primer y único filme en el que los adolescentes descubren el amor y el sexo, sin chistes ni bromas. El guión y los diálogos van por delante de las magníficas interpretaciones, que y’a es decir. Felicitémonos por la obra de Techiné

  4. Carlos Pineda's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    Un hermoso filme cuyo eje son los personajes. Techiné sabe sacar de sus actores pequeños momentos de actuación de gran significado y, la puesta en escena de ellos se logra con los elementos cinematográficos. Además, en el guion aparece una delicadeza en cuanto al tratamiento de los temas, que hacen del trabajo algo muy sensible.

  6. Alex Meire's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    Good double bill paired with Hôtel des Ameriques. A different, younger take on the same obsession. Several elements in common (dance scenes, evanescence of love after first touch, derived sufferance), plus some others here (schooling teenage aches, friendship, war, colonialism, militarism, paramilitarism, ideology / rationality vs comprehension, alterity, etc.). Broader, not sure if superior.

  7. Francisco Real's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    Una reflexión adolescente con exploración profunda de los personajes. De alguna manera, no se desea que termine.

  8. tatiana.kuznetsova's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    Everyones confused, sad and doesn't let love in. At least there's some gay in it but I see the director working through some shit

  11. Tutu888's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    Techine's Wild Reeds tackles a lot of topics but does that with grace. Ultimately the mood of this period in French history is more important than the focus on 1 or 2 leading characters. Excellent film making.

  12. g's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    Un Törless francés durante la guerra de Argelia. Quizás un poco menos cobarde que el estudiante de Musil, aunque persiste algo pusilánime que molesta. Y sin el imperio en decadencia como trasfondo. La narrativa de Téchiné es diáfana. La luz codifica todo. Muy buen manejo del sonido, del ritmo, de la configuración emocional.

  13. Gabriel Vasto Laurindo De Masi's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    Very well developed characters, dealing with emotions, discovery and lose. However, i felt that the movie was a little bit lost at the end, trying to tell so many things simultaneously, although the scene with Mariani and Maite is sublime, as well as Mariani and François, showing two kinds of love: the one capable of overcome ideological divergences, and the one that is the true friendship and mutual comprehension.

  14. Pok's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    4.5 Retrata a la perfección lo compleja que es la vida. Cuatro adolescentes se enfrentan a cuestiones sobre su sexualidad, sus ideales, la política, el mundo, la guerra, la educación, el amor y la muerte. No hay ninguna respuesta sencilla, sólo preguntas difíciles. Aún así, hay un gozo por la vida y ésta continúa, a pesar de nosotros.

  15. Filipe Martins Santos Merces's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    The best coming of age film i have ever seen.

  18. evill009's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    Mesmerizing. I travel back to my beautiful 90s with this beautiful movie.

  19. Maribou's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    Incisive words may be stuffed in the mouths of improbably articulate characters but this film triumphs in creating a captivating, fresh & tender view of life on the cusp of adulthood. While the Algerian War rages to its end in the background, teenage perspectives shift & emotions boil in the fore. And it's all pretty as a peach. Adored it.

  20. Safa's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    The characters are so intertwined in their own thought system. They are young and stupid but much more importantly they are experiencing sexuality.

  21. leonordbatista's rating of the film Wild Reeds

    As I walk along, I wonder what went wrong with our love A love that was so strong And as I still walk on, I think of The things we've done together While our hearts were young I'm walkin' in the rain Tears are fallin' and I feel the pain Wishin' you were here by me To end this misery I wonder Why She ran away
