This boy is almost drowned by grandfather in smal pool.
He and his brothers and sisters are forced by mother into daily bowel movements.
One brother is a body builder. One sister is crezy and plays under house collecting bugs and is put in hospital.
He tries to kill his grandpa out of jealousy over a neighbor girl.

By any chance could it be "Leolo" by director,Jean-Claude Lauzon. I was not able to find it on the database.

Ok, I found it. I too thought it was Italian but to my surprise it's French. I saw this movie years ago. It was alright, a much better film "My life as a dog" and
"400 blows"

I too have seen it, and while I'm not sure the film quite rises to the heights of "400 Blows", it is a good picture nonetheless.

Not a patch on Les Quatre Cents Coups or My Life as a Dog, but a decent film. Most infamous, if I remember rightly, for (non-explicit, I ought to say) scene where boy masturbates with a piece of raw meat.
