Format: DVD
Eleve Libre was Joachim Lafosse's follow-up to Private Property, and on balance I think it is less successful, but better than the recent Our Children. All three films have quite a lot in common and are highly topical, with this one proving the most incendiary. The subject is certainly a dangerous one, involving three adults who seduce a 16-year-old boy one of them is teaching, called Jonas. The main one, Pierre, is gay but doesn't tell Jonas, choosing to seduce him by stealth and in tandem with the other two, Didier and Nathalie, in what is a clear case of grooming. You feel early on the inappropriateness of their questioning him about his girlfriend in physical detail; it is already remiss. In fact the film gets the uneasy feeling of their actions without their being condemned by a third party or paying the price at the end, which possibly reflects its French-language provenance. I can't imagine many countries passing it for audiences unless there was a clear sense of paying the price. To an alert observer, however, the film speaks for itself, and no one could not be shocked by Pierre's lack of honesty, turning nasty with Jonas and implying that he hasn't abused him at all or done anything the boy didn't want. This is patently not true, and I would say he more or less raped him. It is a measure of the film's subtlety that while the three adults are quite wrong in their actions, you feel that Jonas has been harmed more by the unpleasantness of Pierre and the manipulation - the dishonesty - rather than the sex per se. For instance it was probably far more damaging to push him into breaking up with his girlfriend, to whom he was well suited, than to con him into receiving oral sex. The nature of these adults' influence on him is terrible, but not quite as one might expect.Read more ›

Format: DVD
This Belgian-French film ("Élève libre", of which the English-language title is "Private Lessons") is a sexually highly charged movie, when it gets into that gear. However, it can take awhile before the actors get beyond long stretches of yak-a-tee-yak-yak-yak. There also are way too many scenes in which they dine, snack, and/or drink, daintily and elegantly, but tiresomely too frequently. The film is very conversational (except in the "wannabe-pro" young athlete's grunting bouts of playing tennis), which makes the lack of alike an English soundtrack or subtitles in English (or in any other language) an hardship in the North American DVD edition (Alliance/Vivafilm 110453) which I own and have viewed. There are, however, other ways and DVD product(s) to see this film in French with subtitles (and some bonus features, too, lacking on the edition viewed). Then, too, the film has long stretches of rather static inaction (other than the mouths of all and sundry droning on), which probably resulted in the film having been inexpensive to make, but a bit tiring to watch. The lighting, however, is no sign whatsoever of cheap production, for this film is exceptionally well-lit and visually well conceived.

The sex is most frequently between adolescents (the youth and his girlfriend), but also, consensuallly, between adult and adolescent, the young male athlete of sixteen coaxed into inappropriate activity (i.e. heterosexually and homosexually), urged on by the mature male who has taken him under wing to help him in his studies, and on the part two other adults who take an improper sexual interest in him and enjoy exhibiting themselves sexually, undressed, at least once, before him and his mentor.

It was interesting, but not what I totally expected. An interesting family group. It could have gone a bit further with the storyline.
