Au revoir les enfants

Directed by Louis Malle

1987

Au revoir les enfants is a mostly autobiographical French language narrative film about a Roman Catholic boarding school in occupied France. The film is well made, but cautious. The emotion is finely wrought rather than overplayed or sentimental, and though nothing is revelatory, Malle is consistently perceptive.

Would see.
