Goodbye Children is an intimate autobiographical film based on Louis Malle’s memories and experiences as a child while attending a Catholic boarding school that attempted to hide Jewish students from the Nazi occupiers of France. This is a realistic and quiet tragedy that is never overly sentimental, and yet contains deep and complex emotions of friendship, betrayal and guilt (Klaus Ming October 2016).
