French writer-director Camille Vidal-Naquet's first feature is a moody character study of a young gay prostitute whose tenderness survives even his most bruising experiences.

Sauvage, selected in the Semaine de la Critique at the Cannes Festival 2018, received critical acclaimed and was praised for its acting, in particular the intense Felix Maritaud in the leading role.
