Au revoir les enfants tells a heartbreaking story of friendship and devastating loss between two boys living in Nazi-occupied France. At a provincial Catholic boarding school, the precocious youths enjoy true camaraderie—until a secret is revealed. Based on events from writer/director Louis Malle's own childhood, the film is a substle, precisely observed tale of courage, cowardice and tragic awakening. From the director of Murmur of the Heart, Pretty Baby, Atlantic City, My Dinner With Andre and Damage. (Fully subtitled)
