Au Revoir les Enfants (Malle, 1987)

This stunningly intricate character study from Louis Malle is personal, subtle, and steady, even when examining an all-encompassing preternatural evil hidden in the details of place. Au Revoir les Enfants sneaks up on you like few films do, and it’s haunting final scene will stay with you for weeks. You can find my review at Slant.
