How these two young boys defy the taboos in Les Amitiés Particuliers

The handsome Georges de Sarre (interpreted by Francis Lacombrade) entered the Saint-Claude Catholic boarding school, which was headed by severe clergymen. It is within this austere and religious framework that Georges discovers with surprise that there are unacknowledged homosexual relations between some of his gay comrades. Besides, he himself meets the cute Alexandre Motier (interpreted by Didier Haudepin). The two young boys fall in love with each other irresistibly. But there is the pressure exerted by certain priests who are not very clear. The love letters that the two young lovers Georges and Alexandre write to each other will be at the heart of their tragic history.

This wonderful love film between adolescents is beautiful, romantic and very sad. Pure emotions!
