How does se passer differ from passer with être?
This relates to:Passer can be used with avoir or être in Le Passé Composé... and changes meaning -
Se passer has the meaning of to take place or to happen and takes être as does all pronominal verbs.
Passer can be used with a direct object (transitive) and takes avoir or with an indirect object (intransitive) and has to take être.
