Louis Malle's Murmur of the Heart, we are told, is the director's most autobiographical feature and one of his most successful here and abroad. It's a sensuous journey of self-discovery told from the perspective of a French adolescent of aristocratic stock, and the details of his sexual initiation are by turns playful and shocking. Overall, it's a sharply detailed and quietly involving coming-of-age story. It screens in Laemmle's Anniversary Classics simultaneously in three theaters.
