Laurent Chevalier a quinze ans. Fils d'un gynécologue marié à une Italienne anticonformiste, il grandit entre l'indifférence de son père et l'indulgence de sa mère. Ses deux frères aînés l'initient à la vie sexuelle en l'entraînant dans une maison de passe. Atteint d'un souffle au coeur, il doit faire un séjour dans une ville d'eau avec sa mère. L'intimité s'accroît entre eux et, un soir de quatorze juillet, grisés par la fête et les libations, ils succombent ensemble à l'ivresse des sens.
A candid portrait of one boy's journey from childhood to adulthood. A precocious fifteen-year-old boy's sexual maturation and unorthodox relationship with his free-spirited mother is both shocking and deeply poignant.

This 1971 film by French director Louis Malle is about a 15-year old boy transitioning into adulthood, while facing the usual sexual and psychological problems. This is a great film by a competent director, although the theme involving incest may turn off some viewers. Recommended. Subtitles.

Sexual Content: Limited nudity, but some sexual situations, including one between mother and son. Despite the presence of child/teenage actors, this film is not for children.
