Murmur of the Heart (1971)
Le souffle au cœur 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, he is smothered by his mother, he is ignored by his father, a priest makes a pass at him, he gets rheumatoid fever, etc. Theres enough scandalous behavior in this film to make 100 made-for-TV movies, and yet this is a very happy and oddly innocent tale.
Dijon 1954, o familie burgheză obişnuită: tatăl e un ginecolog absorbit de meserie, mama, o femeie veselă şi fără griji, iar Laurent, cel mai mic dintre cei trei fii, e un băiat inteligent şi sensibil, care îşi trăieşte cu intensitate adolescența. Pentru a-şi trata o minoră afecţiune cardiacă, el pleacă la sanatoriu însoţit de mama sa, cu care ajunge la o relaţie incestuoasă.
