Through Murmur of the Heart; Lacombe, Lucien; and Au Revoir les Enfants, Louis Malle creates a portrait of youth on the brink, one that is rebellious, heartbreaking, funny, and brave. These intreviews and documentaries provide new insights into the man who made, and mirrored, these films.
GreenCine Says: Criterion's new set of three beautiful films by Louis Malle includes the warm, funny Murmur of the Heart, the morality tale Lacombe, Lucien, and the Oscar-nominated masterpiece Au Revoir les Enfants. The set also includes a bonus disc featuring new interviews with Malle's widow Candice Bergen and biographer Pierre Billard, excerpts from a French TV program featuring the director on the set, audio interviews with Malle, and more. The films themselves are the real treat, with the transfers everything we'd hoped for.
