Screening. The courage of Résistance fighters in occupied Paris during WW2 is brought to light in this gripping drama by celebrated director Robert Guédiguian, previously best known for blue-collar dramas set in his native Marseilles.
Jean-Pierre Darroussin plays a detective inspector aware of just what’s going on, thus playing on our expectations that the ever-jovial character actor will make a stand for human decency. What follows focuses our attention on how we might react in similar circumstances, transforming a tense, authentic historical saga into a living, breathing testament to the reality that questions of moral commitment never really go away.
