THE NAKED HEARTS (A.K.A. LES COEURS VERTS) 1966
FR. film. Leather jacket-wearing, teenage delinquents drifting in the slum suburbs of Paris. The Naked Hearts is the story of two Parisian juvenile delinquents after they leave a reformatory. They are on probation and want to stay out of trouble but the lure of the gang proves too difficult to resist.  In many ways the gang is their only "family."

Look for a youth dance hall scene where a local rock group performs while the teens and 20-set dance with their dates.  When the group breaks into Gene Vincent's "Be Bop A Lula" the entire audience stops dancing, moves to the front of the stage and starts whooping and hollering.

The Naked Hearts is filmed in a documentary style that gives it realism and a shocking punch during a gang rape scene. During the scene each gang member takes his turn while the poor girl is on her back in the weeds. As the gang members finish they climb on to an abandoned pipe network to get a good view of the rest of the proceedings. In another scene the gang breaks into an athletic club and when they find the cash register empty, they decide to go for a nude swim.

Somehow, with all this bad boy behavior, there is a sense of compassion bestowed upon these delinquents. The film, shot entirely on location with few professional actors, provides a very realistic view of 1966 French juvenile delinquency. Music by: Serge Gainsbourg and Henri Renaud. Gérard Zimmermann, Marise Maire, Eric Penet, Françoise Bonneau, Arlette Thomas, Elliott Stein, Nat Lilienstein. [In French with English subtitles]

MOD AND ROCKERS 1964
FR short film. This on-the-scene film looks at England's 1964 motorcycle rocker boys, their women, lifestyles and attitudes. They are compared and contrasted to the fancy dressing, scooter-commuter mods. One thing is for certain, whether mod or rocker, the men treat their women badly. The rockers think the mods are sissy effeminates. The mods think the rockers are greasy low lives.
