Louis Malle: Youth and Conflict ( Le Souffle au Coeur; Lacombe Lucien; Au Revoir, Les Enfants )

Louis Malle remains one of the most well-loved, and well-regarded French film makers from the 1960s right through to the 1990s. This triple-pack compiles "Le Souffle au Coeur" ("Murmer of the Heart") (1971), "Lacombe Lucien" (1974) and "Au Revoir, Les Enfants" ("Goodbye, Children") (1987). In "Malle: The Early Years" the director's skills were developing. Later on, a more confident director, he began to make more autobiographical films. Films about youth, and the moral choices that litter the pre-adult years.
