Dividing Bar

Good piece based on Jhemp Hoscheit's semi-autobiographical novel, with Hoscheit's son Ben Hoscheit as the lead. Depicts near-universal experiences in the specific context of 1960s Luxembourg, with its social conservatism, strong Roman Catholicism, multilingual school system, memories of Nazi occupation, etc.

What to say about this one? There is not much of a plot but it is a pleasant enough film. Seems WW2 still loomed large in 1962 in the Europe where this is set.
