Winner of the Venice Film Festival’s Golden Lion Award for 1987, Louis Malle’s Au revoir les enfants has been acclaimed as a masterpiece wherever it has been shown. One of the great filmmakers of our time, Malle wrote and directed this delicate and heartbreaking portrait of friendship between Julien, a Catholic boy, and his schoolmate Jean, one of several Jewish children being sheltered at a boarding school during the Nazi occupation of France. It is at once a moving, unforgettable story and an evocation of a deeply personal formative experience in Malle’s life.
