 EN. THIS SPECIAL FRIENDSHIP tells of the tender relationship between a twelve-year-old boy and the upperclassman who is the object of his desire. All set in the rigid atmosphere of a Jesuit run school.
The movie is based on Roger Peyrefitte's book. Peyrefitte studied in religious schools during his childhood, lived older/younger male to male love with a fan of his book, and outed many homosexual celebrities of his time, including his friend Henry de Montherlant, whose book (later a movie) La Ville Dont le Prince Est un Enfant has some coincidences with Les Amities Particulières.
