Entertainment Reviews:

Los Angeles Times - 04/06/1989
"...Elegant detail, sharp observation, perfect performances..."

"The feral, sexually vital quality of Massari's great performance goes a long way towards explaining her character's sons."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Louis Malle's critically acclaimed film 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.

Product Description:

While convalescing at a health retreat, a sensitive and sexually curious teenage boy explores his identity, with a little help from his doting mother. The tender direction belies the film's provocative sexual themes, which caused it to be almost banned in France upon its release.

Plot Synopsis:

14-year-old Laurent, like most boys his age, has an avid interest in sex -- but he has never had the chance to experience the real thing. Instead, he remains wrapped up in family problems, including his mother's unhappiness with her marriage. Then a serious illness sends him to a spa for a period of recovery, and he finally receives a tender and loving sexual initiation... with a most unexpected partner.
