Jean Delannoy's This Special Friendship (Les Amities partculieres) is set in a boy's boarding school of the early 1930s. Two of the students, Francis Lacombrade and Francois Leccia, become close friends. Lacombrade has definite ideas concerning homosexuality: he's dead set against it, and is willing to blow the whistle on anyone whom he suspects to be "different." When Lacombrade himself comes out of the closet, as it were, the loyal Leccia arranges for the private meetings between Lacombrade and his vis-a-vis Didier Haudepin. Michel Bouquet, a young priest assigned to teach at the school, begins to suspect that something "unnatural" is going on...

Sentimental tragedy January 25, 2018
Reviewer: J. Caps from United States  
We chose this film because of its music scoring by the great Jean Prodromides and, since it's set in a Catholic boys' school, the score is all choral and clerical.  Regrettably, there is not much music in the film but the directing-and-performances are musical in their own right:  story of infatuation among students and the strict reaction of the school hierarchy.  Because it's a melodrama, it could have used a more participatory music score but, all-in-all, it comes off as a sensitive period piece, very French and very 1960s.
