Adapted by Claude Miller from Philippe Grimbert's autobiographical novel, this is a splendid and moving saga of a Jewish family in post-war Paris, told through the eyes of a frail & intelligent young boy who senses something is amiss with his beautiful parents (Cecile De France & Patrick Bruel). On his fifteenth birthday a family friend tells him a shattering truth - tying his family's past to the Holocaust - that may enable him to develop his own sense of self.
