From Back Cover:
"A handsome look at sexual desire."
-Jay Weissberg, Variety
"The film has an extraordinary sensuality... one of the year's most provocative films."
Based on a play by Jean-Marie Besset, Rober Salis' Grande École is an extraordinarily sensual film about the roles of power, class, race and sexuality in relationships.
In one of France's elite private schools, a group of attractive 20-something students find themselves enmeshed in emotional and sexual power games. These games become a lot more heated and complicated when Paul (Grégori Baquet) finds himself attracted to both a lower-class Arab worker (Salim Kechiouche) and Louis-Arnault, his roommate (Jocelyn Quivrin) even though he already has a girlfriend.
Crap. The provocative cover and intriguing concept lured me into buying it, but the plodding script had me bored to tears. I think it's about time that I give up on erotic film altogether, because I've yet to find any worth a damn.
