Based on events from writer-director Louis Malles own childhood, Au revoir les enfants is the tragic story of friendship and devastating loss between two boys at a Catholic board-school in Nazi-occupied France. Julien befriends Jean, and the two precocious youths enjoy true camaraderie until Jeans secretthat he is a Jew being hid by sympathetic priestsis revealed.
