aka À toute vitesse First screened in May 2016
Director: Gaël Morel. Cast: Pascal Cervo, Meziane Bardadi, Élodie Bouchez, Stéphane Rideau, Salim Kechiouche, Mohammed Dib, Romain Auger, Bernard Villeneuve, Paul Morel. Screenplay: Gaël Morel and Catherine Corsini. Twitter Capsule:
Young lead of Wild Reeds directs former costars in wan, contemporary-set drama with related themes. Much too tentative.
Dips its toes into areas of deep concern (French-Algerian relations, anomie in the banlieue, homoerotics, the artist as cannibal), but none are memorably developed.
