Overview
One of the first French films to address the issue of collaboration during the German Occupation, Louis Malle’s brave and controversial 'Lacombe, Lucien' traces a young peasant’s journey from potential Resistance member to Gestapo recruit. At once the story of a nation and one troubled boy’s horrific coming of age, the film is a disquieting portrait of lost innocence and guilt.
