Au Revoir, Les Enfants Review


Excellent
Louis Malle made a lot of films about coming of age and losing childish innocence over his storied career. But none is so powerful as Au Revoir, Les Enfants, Malle's autobiographical tale of the time he spent in a Franch boarding school during the German occupation of his homeland.

The tale revolves around a new student, Jean Bonnet, and one of the other lads there, the pint-sized Julien Quentin.

Safe Conduct Review


OK
French director (and cineaste favorite) Bertrand Tavernier is 20 years out from his masterpiece, Coup de torchon. Since then, most of his work has been forgettable, if not awful ('Round Midnight being the exception), and Tavernier seemed to be scraping bottom in 1999 with his oh-my-God-how-uninteresting-can-one-movie-be It All Starts Today.

Tavernier's 2002 entry, Safe Conduct, starts out with considerable promise, but it's ultimately a squandered effort.
