A Love to Hide (French title: Un amour à taire) is a French film made for television, directed by Christian Faure, which aired in 2005. It is loosely based on the book Moi, Pierre Seel, déporté homosexuel by Pierre Seel.

Plot summary[edit]

The action takes place in France during the Second World War.

A young Jewish girl, Sarah, is looking to escape the clutches of the Third Reich after seeing her parents and sister brutally slain by a smuggler who betrayed them while attempting to escape to England. Terrified, she is sheltered by her childhood friend Jean, a homosexual in a clandestine relationship with his lover Philippe.

They are safe for the moment, thanks to Jean's plan to pass her off as a Christian employee of his laundromat. However, a bad decision made by Jean's troublesome brother Jacques causes Jean to be wrongly accused of being the lover of a German officer. Jean is then forced into a Nazi labor camp.



A Love to Hide is the second film of director Christian Faure dealing with homosexuality. He had previously directed Just a Question of Love (2000), a made-for-television film chronicling a love story between two young men.

This is one of few films about the deportation of homosexuals during World War II. It is loosely based on the book Moi, Pierre Seel, déporté homosexuel by Pierre Seel published in 1994 The film was dedicated to Pierre Seel who died in the same year that it was made.
