Making a name for themselves

French film director Camille Vidal-Naquet and leading man Félix Maritaud tell Attitude about their new film, which delves into the world of male prostitution


TOUCHING: Félix Maritaud as Leo

Halfway through watching Sauvage, the feature debut of French ilmmaker Camille Vidal-Naquet (and, no, not the Johnny Depp aftershave ad), it suddenly dawns on me that I don’t know the name of the main character, a gay hustler turning tricks on the streets and in the woods of Strasbourg, in north east France.

Still coming up short after scouring my notes, I turn to a trusted source — *cough* IMDb — and discover that our protagonist, played by rising star Félix Maritaud, is called Leo. My brain didn’t fail me though. Further digging reveals that his name is not uttered once during the ilm. “Why?” is one of the irst questions I put to Camille and his leading man when we meet a few weeks later at the Hospital Club in London’s Covent Garden.
