Eban and Charley

U.S.A., 2000, VO French subtitles, 86'

Unpublished in France



Eban, 29 and an ex-soccer coach, has returned to his hometown to live with his parents. There he befriends Charley, a sweet-faced boy of 15 who has recently lost his mother.

The two gradually become intimately involved and their affair is threatened when the boy's father learns of the relationship. Ultimately Eban, who has lost his job in a similar scandal, must decide whether he's willing to risk the possibility of arrest and prison to be with Charley.

Produced loosely adhering to the Dogma 95 manifesto, this demonically pensive, unsettling film raises difficult questions about society's right to decide when a youth can choose whom he loves. However, Eban & Charley is too too sensitively directed to provide easy answers.
