Not only excellent: useful, too !
25 March 2002 | by (Lorient, France) – See all my reviews

It definitely was very risky to shoot a movie for prime-time Network television with such a sensitive subject. The director, Fabrice Cazeneuve, and all those who contributed deserve congratulations for that. But the most important is that they did not only tried, they succeeded, and made a *good* movie. Vincent is a 17 year old guy like most 17 year old guys. Everybody would think his primary distinction is to be the best swimmer of his high school team. But the hidden truth is that Vincent is gay, a truth that is suddenly revealed to everybody in the high school, which will change his life... This could have been a terrible movie. Its makers could have been too shy and erase all controversy. They could have only achieved to provoke. But, thanks to a marvelously, sensibly written script, they managed to walk the thin line in the middle. Most of what happens on the screen seems true, the characters definitely look like the people you live with every day. Congrats also have to go to the actors. Julien Baumgartner, Julia Maraval, Jérémy Elkaïm, François Comar and the rest of the cast are perfect, delivering a very touching and subtle performance.

"A cause d'un garçon" reaches the goal its authors probably set for themselves. The movie can both help straight people to understand and accept the gay people around them, and allow gay people to think to their own stories, maybe even incite them to make their coming out.

If only TV could produce more movies like this!
