Overview
Louis Malle’s critically acclaimed Murmur of the Heart (Le souffle au coeur) gracefully combines elements of comedy, drama, and autobiography in a candid portrait of a precocious fifteen-year-old boy’s sexual maturation. Both shocking and deeply poignant, this is one of the finest coming-of-age films ever made.
