I'll edit the title to SOLVED when it's solved.

Years ago some member brought up a film that has young boys and nudity (years ago), but that it had a good score, which it did. I tried helping the members by noting carefully the times to start and immediately stop to hear the score and avoid this awful film. Anyway, I want to re-find it, makes suites and that way we can all be done with ever having to watch it again just to hear the music.

Please, so no one ends up on any secret Google perverts list, don't Google it. Or Bing it.

I have vague recollections of the obscure film now. I seem to recall the boys being preteen youth and that the film was some disgusting thing that in my mind was secretly shot by perverts of the time that just wanted to see young boys naked on a weird self discovery angle.

North American or European production?

JB, you're not thinking of War Of The Buttons? It has one hilarious (and harmless ) scene with something along the lines of what you've described. Of course, some folks don't look at it as harmless in the freaked out online world we inhabit since film's creation, and I can understand why. To a point. Either way, a Larry Clark film it ain't. And Rachel Portman composed the score.

Your film could be almost any film by Pier Paolo Passolini.

My memory is very vague about this film now. About the only thing I can tell you that I haven't already said:

They were speaking English.
The entire film was about what I described earlier.
It's in color.

That's it, sorry.



As it was, I skimmed through the film to find the music and tried to avoid seeing as much of that shit as I could. I hope some label releases the score, but I also hope there are no pictures in the liner notes or on the cover.

You can open your eyes. They won't be gorged out by lightning and your head won't explode.

Hi Justin, Have not seen this film but could it be this?




I was looking at Christopher Young's list on IMDB and there is a film 1968 called Robby which was re-scored for VHs tape release in 1988.

Below copied from trivia IMDB for ROBBY
For the 1988 reissue on VHS, the original music by John Randolph Eaton was replaced with new music by Christopher Young.

On the first day of filming his nude scenes, Warren Raum suffered severe sunburn on his buttocks, so much so that shooting had to be postponed while he recovered.
Prior to filming, none of the cast and crew were nudists. However, since most of their scenes were filmed in the nude, Warren Raum and Ryp Siani soon became accustomed to not wearing clothes unless it was required for a particular scene, and often wandered amongst the crew stark naked even when not filming. Much of the crew also joined in skinny dipping with the boys during lunch breaks.

The film did not receive a wide distribution because prospective distributors were wary about the extensive nudity featured in the film.

Warren Raum and Ryp Siani were both director Ralph Bluemke's first choices for the two main roles. Luckily, both boys and their parents consented to the extensive nudity in the script.

The film was shot on location on Vieques Island in Puerto Rico, the same island on which Lord of the Flies was filmed only five years earlier. Both films are about boys stranded on a desert island without adult supervision.
