Inspired by Malle’s own experiences, this chronicles the friendship that develops towards the end of WWII between Julien and Jean, a new arrival at the Carmelite boarding school they attend. When Julien learns of Jean’s secret, they’re drawn closer together. The school itself – relatively secluded from the harshness of the Occupation – is a haven recalled with affection but tainted by bitter remorse.
