Did You Know?

The film was an artistic success but a terrible commercial failure, causing the bankruptcy of Mundus Film. As for de Zoubaloff, he moved into the radio set selling while Porchet became the technical manager of the Swiss Film Office.See more »

A breath-taking MASTERPIECE, 18 June 2007
Author: james676 from Teaneck, NJ

I was extremely blessed to see the U.S. television debut of Visages d'enfants on Turner Classic Movies. My god, this was a masterpiece. Why can't contemporary films be half as good? The children were superb! The acting was magnificent. I thought Jean Forest was astonishing as Jean. Such superb acting from a 12 year old. His performance in the first five minutes of the film is exquisite. I thought Arlette Peyran, portraying Jean's step-sister was magnificent as well. I was just depressed to learn that this was her only film! How unfortunate. She had star written all over her. The adult actors are wonderful. I loved Rachel Devirys portrayal of the step-mother. Such love and grace in that performance. The scenery (all shot on location in the Alps) is glorious. This was a perfect film. The music was heavenly. PLEASE SEE THIS FILM.
