Garçon stupide (English: Stupid Boy) is a 2004 film directed by Lionel Baier.
This French language film tells the story of 20-year-old Loic, who works by day in a chocolate factory, and by night cruises the internet for sex with older men. His life is a series of pointless anonymous sexual encounters until he meets one man who appears to be interested in him for himself, and not just his body.
Loic's journey to self-awareness is told through a series of episodic events, such as the suicide of his best friend, his growing infatuation with a local team's soccer star, a car accident and subsequent hospitalisation which uncomfortably reunites him with his parents. At the end of the film he realizes that he can be his own person and he recites a list of things he will never do in order to fit in and belong.
