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.

I think that film was ill-treated at Venice in 1964, when it was presented, the reason is obviously due to the fact there was a particular section devoted to films dedicated at young people enhancement. No matter. This film never has been promoted and distributed in Italy, simply it was forgotten. The only projection was made in Milan in time of carnival (it was a joke?), no one can say it.
The story is one of those, that any sensible male youth, can mirror himself over the tragedy that it brings with. and I hope in its rescue.
