03.10.2017 | The Classic French Film Festival – Au revoir les enfants

March 10, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Categories: Film


Director: Louis Malle

“Au revoir les enfants” tells a heartbreaking story of friendship and devastating loss concerning two boys living in Nazi-occupied France. At a provincial Catholic boarding school, the precocious youth enjoy true camaraderie — until a secret is revealed. Based on events from writer/director Louis Malle’s own childhood, the film is a subtle, precisely observed tale of courage, cowardice, and tragic awakening.

With an introduction and post-film discussion by Jean-Louis Pautrot, professor of French and international studies at Saint Louis University.
