Every year the French education system filters out students who are earmarked as potential candidates for high ranking government positions. They are shipped off to a number of schools known as "Grandes Ecoles," where they are trained to become future leaders of the country. GRANDE ECOLE is a scandalous dramatization of events that happen among the fiercely competitive students, focusing on a burgeoning homosexual relationship between two roommates.
The strict rules of the school forbid such contact, and the students soon come to blows with the overly fussy administration, who seek to clamp down on the boys activities. The tension between the students and the school officials builds to an unbearable breaking point, with director Robert Salis drawing on the main characters ethnic origins to add another facet to the conflict. A brave statement on the state of contemporary French schooling, GRANDE ECOLE is a powerful, moving drama from a director who, on this evidence, has a glittering future ahead of him.
Lots of sexy fun, Grande École makes no pretense at intellectualism; there's plenty of high drama, lots of naked guys, hot sex and a budding gay romance! Grande École directed and written by Robert Salis gives us a look into the lives of the young elite of France, and it's even more complicated, with race thrown into the stew of sex and class. The film is set at an elite French Business School, where uber-rich kids learn to become tycoons.
The action revolves around Paul (Gregori Baquet), who, in one of many parallels to Maurice, is not quite to the manor born. As the film begins Paul is straight and dating a woman. To his surprise, he finds himself emotionally and sexually drawn to his rich, powerful and gorgeous roommate Louis (Jocelyn Quivrin). He finds relief — and and eventually romance — when Mécir, a working-class Arab (in other words, totally inappropriate) young man (Salim Kechiouche) comes on to him hard.
Grande École is a highly dramatic film with searingly graphic lovemaking and two very steamy men's shower scenes. Ultimately, though, Salis gives Paul the same choice that Forster gave Maurice: a life of wealth, power and emotional emptiness or societal ostracism in return for true passion.
