Eastern Boys centres on some boys from Eastern countries (Poland, Russia, Romania…), the oldest being perhaps 25. We don’t know how old the youngest ones are. They hang around near the Gare de l’Est railway station. They appear to be prostitutes.

Muller, a discreet man of nearly 60, has spotted one of them: Marek. One day, Muller makes a move and goes to talk to him. The young man agrees to see him again the following day, at Muller’s home. The next day, when there is a ring at the door, Muller has no idea he is about to fall into a trap.

The five other projects set to receive an advance on receipts from the CNC are Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche’s Les Chants de Mandrin (“Mandrin’s Songs”, currently shooting – see newsSarrazink Productions); Today by Alain Gomis (who won acclaim for As A Man, winner of the Best Debut Film Leopard at Locarno in 2001, and was selected in Venice Days 2007 with Andalucia [+see also:
