Aro Recommended L'Enfance-Nue


aka: Naked Childhood
USA 1968, 83 minutes
Dir. Maurice Pialat
In French with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama / Youth

Topics: Rites-of-passage.


Aroview: Astonishingly sober coming-of-age tale represents Pialat at his most profoundly unsentimental. The director brilliantly blends naturalism and cynicism in his portrait of an angry, yet kindhearted ten-year-old boy who is passed on from one foster home to the next.
