After School Activity

An uneven potpourri of shorts, most of them about male teens yearning for sex and/or companionship. Patrick McGuinn's two entries are the strongest, perhaps because each expresses its idea honestly and succinctly: in Soda Pop (2001) a young man falls for a Spanish foreign-exchange student, and in Baby Blue a man ponders a risque encounter with a childhood pal he hasn?t seen in years. In contrast, Pascal Vincent's Final Exams (2001) takes a charming but meandering look at French teenagers' attitudes toward sexuality; it's less wholesome than Dawson's Cree but equally mixed-up. On the same program, films by David Quantic, David Kittredge, and Julian Cautherley. 68 min.
