Review:

This is a jolly coming-of-age story about a 15-year-old boy named Laurent Chevalier who is growing up in bourgeois surroundings in Dijon, France. This is France in the mid-1950s rather than America in the 1990s. Thus, Laurent is unharmed by events which would irreparably shatter the self-esteem of a modern American adolescent: he gets drunk, he smokes, he has sex (including incestuous sex), he is smothered by his mother, he is ignored by his father, a priest makes a pass at him, he gets rheumatoid fever, etc. There's enough scandalous behavior in this film to make 100 made-for-TV movies, and yet this is a very happy and oddly innocent tale. - Tim Horrigan, IMDb

A masterpiece of film making from a legendary director. A controversial subject that is handled very realistically and tastefully. It is difficult to write a review on this film, so I am going to tell everyone to watch this great film whenever you get the chance.
Outstanding and highest recommendation.
