Product Description

Coming-of-age gay drama. Vincent (Julien Baumgartner) is a quiet, handsome 16-year-old boy and star of the school swimming team. He has a beautiful girlfriend, Noémie (Julie Maraval) - but Vincent is really attracted to boys. After a chance encounter with new boy Benjamin (Jeremie Elkaim), Vincent's true sexuality is exposed, and gossip spreads through the school like wildfire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and moving 12 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I was a bit wary of buying this film due to the lack of reviews, but with it having Jérémie Elkaïm from 'Presque Rien' and being a sucker for French films, I took the plunge - and it was well worth it!
Jérémie's character comes across very naïve, but any gay man will recognise the split personality one has in his pre-coming out life. Very beautiful actors, very interesting well-acted characters and a story we can all relate to.
This is certainly a film that you'll want to watch again and again, if you're put off by the French language and English subtitles please give the film a go, you'll be pleased if you do. I wanted to watch it again and again!

2.0 out of 5 stars A film about a cliche 30 Jun 2005
By Lee R
Format:DVD
This film was just a run of the mill coming out/being outed runaround with nothing to differentiate it from the crowd of gay films. 10 years ealier, such a film would have been a classic, but times have moved on and the classical gay teenager film needs to evolve with the times, or we'll end up with even more dated films like this.
There are far more fun and stylish French gay films out there from impressive talents - I recommend that you give "Ma Vie" a spin before this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Everyday Coming-Out Story 23 Aug 2009
By Nicholas Casley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The original French title of this movie is "A Course d'un Garcon".

Three friends are in their final year at college on the outskirts of Paris: two guys, one girl - one guy is gay, the other straight, and the girl is the gay guy's girlfriend. Confused? You won't be, for it's all presented in an easy manner. But the gay guy, Vincent, is not yet 100% certain of his sexuality. And whilst his straight friend stands by him in these turbulent times, the girl eventually concludes that Vincent is only using her as a point of solace. And then there's Vincent's family as well, to whom he comes out during the movie: there's the pushy father, the worried mother, the out-of-work brother.

Does the film draw me in emotionally? To a degree, but I can think of better coming-out movies than this one. Its fault - if it is one - is that it is perhaps too real, to everyday. Vincent is outed at college by a fellow student to whom he made a pass, and he is outed at home by his resentful elder brother. It's not a warm feel-good movie. These lives are normal run-of-the-mill lives. Its realism is confirmed by the lack of a denouement at the movie's end, although it does end on an upbeat. (I did wonder, when seeing that the screenplay was written by someone called Vincent Molina, whether it was semi-autobiographical. It certainly has that feel.)

Surprisingly perhaps for a French movie, it isn't particularly sexy, and there is no real emotional attachment by our hero to anyone. He spends a lot of the time looking dazed as people talk to him, and the guy playing Vincent (Julien Baumgartner) is probably a little too old to be playing a seventeen-year-old; but he's still cute, like a young Brad Pitt - and as a leading member of the college swimming team, there's a lot of nakedness on hand!

Apart from some promos of other movies, there are no extras.

Still a good film, but now I have 2 copies!
