Olivier, a seventeen-year-old high school student, is a good-looking young man, much more mature than most of his schoolmates. One day he meets Frédérique, 25, a beautiful woman who attracts him strongly. The trouble is that she has a life companion, race car driver Enrico. For the time being, Enrico is away in Detroit to test a new prototype and Frédérique is idle in Paris that is why she welcomes the young man's company. Slowly but surely, the friendship turns into an affair, for Frédérique finds she shares Olivier's feelings. But Enrico finally comes back to Paris. Will Olivier and Frédérique's love story be possible in these conditions? Written by Guy Bellinger

Renaud Verley
25 June 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Strange what happens with some movie experiences one has as a very young person. "La Leçon Particulière" is one of those films that I've been trying not to see again because I have a tingling memory about it and I know it could reproduce today that tingling sensation that provoked in me then. Well, I was right. I saw it, and although the film is as light as a feather I could remember what was it that made me love it. It wasn't the gorgeous "older woman" played by Natalie Delon (Mrs Alain Delon then), but Renaud Verley. I though he lighted up the screen and he did. I predicted then an enormous career for him but other that a smallish part in Luchino Visconti's "The Damned" I've never seen him in anything else. His beauty, sexiness and charisma will be forever stored in this little film. That in itself is something to talk about and to recommend it for.
