Bad film for a bad era from a French point of view.
21 April 2005 | by (Lyon, France) – See all my reviews

In my opinion the worst movie about a sad era. A propaganda movie for French social and national peace after the second world war. But this is not the truth, I'm French, and I want to the see the true history, like the German people. Sadly enough not all French people were partisans only few of them, and happily not all German people were Nazis. Noel Noel as a scriptwriter and actor is not unbiased. Unfortunately there is a good director (Lust for Evil, Forbidden games...). To me this movie is rubbish. About this era, I would advise people to watch the Louis Malle's movie : Lacombe Lucien, which is much more in keeping with historical truth, sadly French people are only humans.
