While thousands of tourists invade the beaches, camping grounds and clubs of Corsica, five teenagers from Porto Vecchio hang out. One evening, they are led to an unoccupied luxury villa and they spend the night there. Full of hormones, half-naked pool parties and rash teenage decisions. Like Larry Clark's films, Les Apaches feels clued in to the generation depicted, offering a seemingly authentic portrait of it. This film was premiered at the Cannes 2013 in the section the Directors’ Fortnight.
