1930's was a great period for French Cinema. This is about three teenage boys in a French boarding school who form a secret society and meet secretly late at night. The kids are all wonderful, and if that isn't enough, two of the teachers are Erich von Stroheim and Michel Simon. Von Stroheim scares the children (and the other teachers), and Michel Simon is drunk throughout the film. 4.7 stars.

Une fraîcheur et une atmosphère bienvenues... www.cinefiches.com
