Murmur of the Heart

Le souffle au coeur

Directed by Louis Malle
France, 1971
Drama

Synopsis

Louis Malle’s critically acclaimed Murmur of the Heart gracefully combines elements of comedy, drama, and autobiography in a candid portrait of a precocious adolescent boy’s sexual maturation. Both shocking and deeply poignant, this is one of the finest coming-of-age films ever made.
