French Gay Film: "Une histoire sans importance"

It's from 1980. It's a short film (44 mins). It's sort of controversial, so I would think. It's about two young boys who are toying with their sexuality. One of the boys ditches the other for a girl, leaving the gay one distraught. It's a black and white film. It looks like it could almost be from the 1960s. It's definitely ahead of its time. I only know of a few other gay films like this pre-80s.

I really can't find much about the filmmaker.

It's on Youtube if you'd like to see it. It's actually really good. The person included subtitles. Just hit the CC under the video and click "English".

Maybe some of you film aficionados know something about this.

I once saw a French film from the 1930s! and in it there's a character who mentions fancying another man, just off the cuff....just one line. A light-hearted film. I wonder what it was called. I was astounded when I saw it.

The film looks awful (no surprises there). Dreadful wooden acting and personally, I hate films about adolescents.

Apparently, this is a much sought-after film by gay history buffs.
