DIRECTOR(S): Camille Vidal
STARRING: Félix Maritaud, Eric Bernard, Nicolas Dibla

SYNOPSIS: Sauvage makes vivid a gay street hustler’s knife’s-edge existence. Both brutal and brutalized, sweet and savage, Maritaud’s prostitute roams from john to john in search of a fix (in the form of sex, drugs, and possibly even love), desperate for both intimacy and freedom, destabilized but ultimately resilient.
