Murmur of the Heart

(Louis Malle, 1971)

Tue, Apr 16, 2013 7 PM

Beloved French filmmaker Louis Malle combines comedy, drama, and autobiography in this candid coming-of-age story about a boy’s sexual maturation.

Murmur of the Heart follows a precocious adolescent as he’s diagnosed with a heart murmur after a bout with scarlet fever and (thanks to a booking accident) forced to room with his mother at the sanatorium. Nominated for the Best Original Screenplay Academy Award. (118 mins., 35mm)
