"Few directors have portrayed the agonies and epiphanies of growsing up as poetically---and controversially---as Louis Malle. Laced with autobiographical details, Murmur of the heart, Lacombe, Lucien, and Au revoir les enfants tell stories 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 ongong response to a world gone wrong."--Container.
