3 Films by Louis Malle


aka: Murmur of the Heart; Lacombe, Lucien; Au revoir les enfants
France 1971-1987, 357 minutes
Dir. Louis Malle
In French with English subtitles


Aroview: Four poetic tales of youth, set against the tumult of World War II and postwar France. Tragic, amusing, and poignant, these three films are more than just coming-of-age stories. They are the director’s ongoing epiphanies in a world gone wrong.
