This movie is very very very good. It's in the Criterion Collection. it has a bit of swearing and it's a boys school, so they're kinda....into girls. For a movie full of children the acting is fantastic. It has some drugs and the main character smokes, it also has some violence but not much. it is very well directed, the characters are really cool, and the plot is great. The film is an accurate portrayal of the Nazi time. The message in this movie is great, the head of the school is hiding Jewish kids because their lives are in danger. He cares not about their religion but that they are good kids who deserve a chance.

Great for learning French and a good movie all together

Yes there is swearing and a little bit of sexual language but nothing that can hurt children
