Great film about true friendship in the shadows of the horrors of WWII. Really touching and highly recommended!
A beautiful touching film about friendship, sacrifice, betrayal, and love. Malle’s autobiographical story of his childhood is masterful.
Si se supera su lentitud se podrá apreciar una gran historia de amistad en momentos muy complicados y tristes.
A little too long, not a must watch for sure, actors are not good, it has not aged well
A simple but compelling story about the brutality and realism of ww2, told through eyes of a child. worth seeing!
It will make you agreed more than just a tear
Watched this school. Found it interesting and poignant despite being a dumb teenager.
Comme Charlot, cette histoire faite une situation horrible paraît presque sympa.
terrific movie showing childhood at its most innocent and it’s mosr vulnerable. The friendship in the story is so heartbreakingly honest
I struggled with this film because the French woman sat in front of me kept joining in with the songs from her childhood
