Stephanie lives in Paris, where she moved many years ago to start a new life as a woman. Now working as a prostitute, she shares her love between two men Mikhail, an unemployed Russian immigrant and Jamel, a street hustler. The trio, battling with the harsh realities of their lives, find solace in each others arms. When she receives a call from her terminally ill mother, the trio return to the rural village where Stephanie grew up. The bleak solitude of the countryside evokes a flood of memories and emotions. Stephanie is haunted by her childhood as a boy and by the early death of her sister. But with the support of her lovers, she comes to terms with the events that have made her who she is today. Exquisitely shot by Agnes Godard (Beau Travail) and with a haunting musical score by Jocelyn Pook (Eyes Wide Shut and The Merchant of Venice) the landscape of the film evokes a time of tranquility and past innocence. With a stunning debut performance from the lead, Stephanie Michelini and featuring I Fell In Love With A Dead Boy performed by Antony from Antony And The Johnsons, Wild Side explores and question male identity in a sympathetic and non-judgemental way. Ultimately it shows us how the new family is anything but nuclear and instead is all about humanity, compassion and a sense of belonging.
