A very good movie

Even though this movie is nowadays pretty much forgotten, I remembered very well when it was released in France.

Description: Téchiné had his greatest success to date with Wild Reeds (Les roseaux sauvages) (1994). The film was commissioned by French television as one of part of a series of eight films entitled Tous les garçons et les filles de leur âge, although it was shown first at cinemas. This is a bucolic tale of teenage self-discovery centered on the inner turmoil of four teenagers staying at a boarding school in Aquitaine in 1962, their political and sexual awakenings with the effect the Algerian War as backdrop.

90 Queer Movies to See Before You Die... (100 movies items)

"CAPTIVATING and EXOTIC! Over 20 years since this film's release, and André Téchiné is still 'the man' when it comes to coming out/coming of age stories. Needless to say, it's hard to disagree that this 1994 classic was the film that set the bar, and brothas' and sistas', it set the bar pretty damn high.
