Proper classic of Malle, what was to become his "graaand epic", autobiographical.

With Au revoir les enfants, Louis Malle puts a piece of his own childhood to the screen, and I wasn't sure, at first, that I needed to see another boarding school coming of age movie set in a past that was not my own (Nazi-occupied France), filled with autobiographical vignettes. But as the friendship between Malle's stand-in Julien and Jean, a secretly Jewish boy, develops, the picture comes into sharp focus. We've meandered into a relationship, half through fascination, half through rivalry, a friendship fraught with tension and danger, with a great potential for heartbreak. Absorbing from the point where you know what's happening and what might happen (and so perhaps all the way through on second viewing), I regret my attitude through the first act, my trouble distinguishing the school boys from one another, my waiting for Irène Jacob to show up in her small role. By the end, I was totally taken in, and left with a heaviness in my heart.

Non-French speakers may enjoy this more than French speakers as they won't be able to tell how bad at acting the children are. Still, such a beautiful film.
