So these six guys walk onto a French gay beach
11 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Garçons de plage", at least to an extent, has three plot elements. First, three pairs of young men on what is surely a designated gay beach spend a few moments together on beach blankets, engaging in the many "getting to know you" sexual activities that one would expect to see in the precisely contemporaneous Laguna Pacific beach films (and their ilk) produced in Los Angeles.

The central part of the film stars Felipe Gambas (paired with Tony Alessandro).

Gambas was prominent in "Les Hommes Preferent les Hommes {Men Prefer Men)" as the sex dancer with a prodigious ability to take an enormous dildo anally and to fist himself, all as an exhibition before men who paid for such a show.

In a secluded portion of the beach Alessandro takes on the role of a boyfriend who fists his mate. He has also brought a enormous strap-on dildo. (We can assume that he and Gambas have no interest in tossing beach balls or playing beach volleyball.)

Alessandro's love-fisting of Gambas is observed by one of the other men who is hidden in the brush. When Alessandro leaves for a restroom, the mysterious one moves behind Gambas, straps on the dildo and applies it vigorously in the orifice that had earlier accommodated Alessandro's fist.

Eventually four of the beach boys chase Gambas' (seemingly welcome) defiler and an orgy of five beachboys ends the film short.

The orgy is expertly choreographed, with the artistic arrangements of the boy's bodies in their lustful pursuits reminding one of Kristen Bjorn's later work.

This is one of the seven video shorts that Jean-Daniel Cadinot released between 1980 and 1982, that typically averaged just under a half hour in length. Three of them "Tendres Adolescents" "Scouts" and "Garcons de Reve" deserve recognition as masterful contributions to the genre (although for different reasons".

"Adolescents" was an affecting presentation of erotic love between two youths. "Garcons de Reve" presaged Cadinot's famous plot-driven later works. ""Scouts" was a satirical recollection of a creative spirit in his late 30s of his boyhood fantasies about the institutions of the priesthood and scouting.

There are analogies between"Garcons de Plage" ("Beach Boys") and "Les Hommes" in that Gambas, whose ability to take objects in his anus is prodigious, stars in both films. After that, Gambas is not listed in any other Cadinot films.

In addition, both short films use Sidney McKenna. McKenna, who takes part in the first scene of "Garçons de plage",(setting his beach towel next to Stephane Bremer's, who, to increase McKenna's already obvious interest, affects drowning.

McKenna's style of mouth to mouth resuscitation would be regarded as derelict by most Red Cross water safety experts.

McKenna is the only member of the cast to be regularly used in Cadinot films.

The Cadinot shorts from 1980 through 1982 may be thought of as different experiments in style for the genre, at times brilliantly successful, at other times (such as in this work) not as much.

However, for those who chide Cadinot for "adding" fisting and dildos to his later works, this films and "Les Hommes Preferent les Hommes" indicate that these themes were always present in Cadinot's vision of his chosen category of filmmaking.
