Zero for Conduct (1933)
Zero for Conduct (1933) is a French film directed by Jean Vigo. It is considered one of the most influential films of the French New Wave movement. The film follows four boys in a boarding school who rebel against the oppressive authority of the school and its teachers.
Despite being made in 1933, the film contains some surprisingly explicit sexual moments. The most notable of these is the scene in which the boys are seen playing a game of strip poker. This scene is particularly shocking as it was filmed during a time when nudity was still considered taboo.
The film also contains a scene in which two of the boys are seen kissing. This is a particularly bold move for a film made in 1933, as homosexuality was still largely seen as a taboo subject.
The film also contains a scene in which one of the boys is seen masturbating. This is another bold move for a film made during this time, as masturbation was still seen as a taboo subject.
Overall, Zero for Conduct (1933) is a groundbreaking film that contains some surprisingly explicit sexual moments. These moments are particularly bold for a film made during this time and serve to highlight the rebellious nature of the film's characters.
