    • Synopsis
    • A young runaway rejects society's condemnation and dares to fulfill
      his dreams.
      France, 1930s. 14-year-old orphan Yves Tréguier sees the world
      through the bars of "educational homes" where he is raised in conditions
      worthy of a penal colony, and dreams of a dramatic escape
      across the ocean to New York.
      Based on the autobiography of Auguste Le Breton, whose books inspired
      some of the greatest noir classics, such as Rififi, Fever Heat and
      The Sicilian Clan, Behind The Walls relates the author's brutal childhood.
      Directed by Christian Faure, who made his name with a string of hit TV
      movies, the film is the angry, tough-as-nails cousin of The Chorus.
      Packed with young talent, the cast also features leading figures of an
      older generation, Carole Bouquet and Catherine Jacob.
