  2. Negative: 3 out of 16
  1. An intriguing examination of alienation and dysfunction, tonally haunting rather than melodramatic.
  2. Loic's journey is rich in incident and detail, and Garçon Stupide retains its dynamic momentum throughout.
  3. 75
    Raw, uncompromising and surprisingly explicit.
  4. 63
    Baier's style is almost uncomfortably voyeuristic, amplified by the casting of a young, inexperienced actor (Pierre Chatagny) in a part that calls for hardcore sex.
  5. Reviewed by: David Ng

    The result is a better-late-than-never coming-of-age tale that is by turns earnest and corny, though never stupide.
  6. Mostly it's tedious as we watch the photogenic but emotionally blank Chatagny bounce between anonymous sexual encounters.

There are flaws that give the viewer a bumpy ride and explicitly clinical depiction of his sexual encounters to distract you from the painful coming of age emergence of the sefish self absorbed, wildly insecure child to a sensitive young man, with a too fascile sugery romantic ending to boot . Very French in style, talky, artsty, sad and poignant. Expand

    "Stupid Boy" is one of the few Swiss films that have been seen outside the country. It is also an LGBT-themed film. Problem is that the"Stupid Boy" is one of the few Swiss films that have been seen outside the country. It is also an LGBT-themed film. Problem is that the purpose of lead role is unclear. What does he do? Good movie but it lacks. Expand
