Le souffle au coeur = Murmur of the heart by Louis Malle( Visual )

16 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laurent a 15 ans. Il est le benjamin d'une fratrie de trois garçons, en révolte contre leur milieu bourgeois catholique. Italienne extravagante, sa mère le couve comme un poussin à peine sorti de l'oeuf. Ses frères, eux, trouvent qu'il est grand temps que Laurent fasse son initiation sexuelle. Louis Malle a tourné ce film juste après sa série documentaire sur l'Inde. Régénéré, le cinéaste s'est enfin senti capable d'aborder des sujets autobiographiques, profondément intimes. A l'âge de 13 ans, comme son jeune héros, Louis Malle a séjourné dans une ville d'eaux pour soigner un souffle au coeur, accompagné de sa mère. Le film aborde assez pudiquement la question de l'inceste, qu'il traite, sans sensationnalisme, à la toute fin. Il semble que le réalisateur se soit plutôt attaché à détourer chaque pièce du puzzle de son enfance : le jazz, la littérature, le collège catholique, les repas familiaux indigestes, la ferveur initiatique de ses grands frères. Le public et les critiques des années 70 restèrent insensibles à cet art de dépoussiérer le quotidien par petites touches anecdotiques et légères. Montré du doigt, à tort, comme un film immoral prônant l'inceste, Le Souffle au coeur choqua énormément. Il n'y avait pourtant pas de quoi : Louis Malle a volontairement mis l'accent sur le caractère accidentel, et donc unique, de cette union mère-fils. (www.telerama.fr)
