Murmur of the Heart
Directed by Louis Malle • 1971 • France, Italy, West Germany
Starring Benoît Ferreux, Lea Massari, Daniel Gélin
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.
