FRENCH
1943, Julien est pensionnaire dans un collège catholique. Il découvre Jean nouveau venu, fier et secret. Julien et Jean se prennent peu a peu en amitié. Cependant ce lien ne pourra jamais s'épanouir. La Gestapo debarque un jour au college et arrête le Pere Jean et les trois enfants juifs qu'il avait cachés parmi ses petits catholiques.

ENGLISH
During the winter of 1943, Julien Quentin, a pampered mother's boy who acts tough to the students at the school but is actually a soft kid who wets the bed, leaves his home in Paris at the end of Christmas break. Saddened to be returning to the tediousness of boarding school, Julien's classes seem uneventful until Père Jean, the headmaster, introduces three new pupils. One of them, Jean Bonnet, is the same age as Julien. Julien at first despises Bonnet, a standoffish intellectual who is being picked on by the rest of the class.

SPANISH
Invierno de 1943. Durante la ocupación alemana de Francia, en un internado católico para chicos, Julián, un muchacho de trece años, queda impresionado por la personalidad de Bonnet, un nuevo compañero que ingresa en el colegio después de iniciado el curso.

  1. Film que inspiró a Quentin Tarantino a titular su primera película como Reservoir Dogs. ¡Gracias, Follapop!
