Marking Maurice Pialat's feature debut, L'Enfance Nue chronicles the tribulations of a child who finds himself sent from one foster home to the other due to his unpredictability and his dangerous behavior. Pialat's exquisite direction and cinematography immerse the audience under the grey skies of rural Northern France and crudely confront them to the beauty and harshness of faces, landscapes and of the lives of the protagonists, making this tale one that deeply moves with its realism and truth.
