| Intrigue in elite French college
LE PLUS BEL AGE, with Gael Morel, a film continuing to play the festival circuit in the U.S., is set in the world of Morel's two other well known films, modern French youth. The film features Elodie Bouchez, who appears in all three of these films, to date. The young people and their school in this film are, however, in another league. We are shown here the French equivalent of the prestigious English public schools. Curiously, French films set in this milieu are as scarce as British films on the subject are numerous. This is one of the film's most interesting aspects. The intrigue among these elite students is made captivating due to the casting of France's cream of youth talent: Morel, Melvil Poupaud, and the now universally acclaimed Elodie Bouchez. I recommend it only for francophiles seeking a rare contemporary glimpse of the children of the "Grande Bourgeoisie".
