Dolan Directs: Indochine – College Boy (2013)

After using a song by Indochine in his film Les amours imaginaires, Xavier Dolan turns his hand to directing a video specifically for one of their songs – College Boy.

It caused something of a stir, because it was deemed to be too violent to be shown to anyone under the age of 18, and comes with a warning on YouTube (see below).

Filmed in black and white, it comments on bullying in schools and how people are complicit by turning a blind eye. It also has something to say about the use of guns.

The victim of the crimes is played by Antoine Olivier Pilon who we will see later in one of Dolan’s features.

Here’s the full video – it does get a bit bloody, so be warned.
