AU REVOIR LES ENFANTS is a 1987 French language drama, with English subtitles, set in a boarding school for boys in occupied France during the Second World War.

Sex

Moderate verbal and visual sex references include the use of the term 'hard-on', the reading aloud of erotic extracts from 'The Arabian Nights', and discreet references to masturbation.

Language

Moderate bad language includes single subtitled uses of the terms 'bitch' and 'whores'. Neither use is aggressively delivered or directed at a specific person. Mild bad language includes the terms 'arse-licker', 'bastard', 'crap' and 'shit'. There are also two uses of the discriminatory terms 'yid' and 'yids'. In one case the term is used by a German soldier and in the other a schoolboy unfamiliar with the term merely asks another boy what it means.

Smoking

Some scenes include schoolboys smoking and buying cigarettes.
