Leo is a 22-year-old sex worker who yearns for affection. In poor health and with no fixed address, he finds fleeting solace in the arms of his clients. The crushing solitude of Leo’s life is tempered when he falls for fellow hustler Ahd. But when his romantic feelings are violently rebuffed, Leo spirals. Vidal-Naquet’s arresting debut comes with its fair share of both brutality and disarming fragility. Such compassion is in no small part thanks to Félix Maritaud, whose raw and vulnerable performance is devastating.
