It's nice to see "FRIENDS" released on DVD. The transfer to disc is excellent and the film looks all the better for it (This version has a 97 mins running time. There may have been a slightly longer version originally screened in cinemas back in 1971). Anicee Alvina and Sean Bury did some wonderful work here and all these years later their performances are still as powerful, and more so, in light of Anicee's passing in 2006, poignant as ever. Recommended further reading for both, "FRIENDS" and the follow up, "PAUL AND MICHELLE" can be found under, "IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME: FRIENDS and PAUL AND MICHELLE", by Scott Murray.

Friends, a 1971 lewis Gilbert feature focuses on the trials and tribulations of teenagers Paul and Michelle, two dysfunctional teens cast adrift from family and friends in seventies France. together they embark upon an adventure to create a new life together in the Camargue, amidst a magical landscape of rustic cottages and wild horses, exploring and developing a coherent set of values revolving around love and companionship. The cinematography is quite spectacular and the soundtrack by Elton John is a secret gem deserving of a wider recognition. Some elements of the film have not dated too well, but this is more than offset by the naive charm that the overall feature achieves attempting to chart the passage between innocent dreams and the crushing cynicism of modern life. A wonderful allegory of nascent counter-cultural values.

I have been trying to find an affordable copy of this movie for years. Here in The States I have seen it sold for over $100.00!
It was worth the wait. I was lucky enough to have found the soundtrack over 20 years ago...I think the music is some of Elton John's best work. The music is throughout the movie and each song blends perfectly with the intended scene. The location at which this film was shot is breathtakenly beautiful. The actting is fresh and innocent, a very coming-of-age style film.
