Storyline

Salomé Lerner just finished writing an autobiograpy. She goes to a TV show called "Apostrophes", hosted by French TV showman Bernard Pivot. Pivot then imagines a film that could be created from her gripping story. A film entirely made of music because after seeing the young pianist Erik Berchot, Salomé believes seeing her long lost brother, who was a musician as well. A brother she had lost along with her parents in 1943. However, the Lerners did in fact escape the gestapo and might have based themselves in Paris... Written by <hitchcock1@videotron.ca>

A French jewish family's recollection of it's painful WWII lose of its beloved ones

Briefly, I have to say it's one of the best French films I have ever seen.Starting with an ordinary interview nowadays the sole surviver of a large extended jewish family, an elderly woman remembers her brothers constant playing S.Rachmaninov music,and her other family members all tragically perished in a Nazi Concentration camp.With a clever use of flashbacks,excellent editing and no overbearing rhetoric's American style,the Director tells a family's holocaust experience in a balanced composed style while at the same time exposing all the elderly woman's pain.And throughout the WHOLE film excellent Rachmaninov piano music played,by a present day piano-player....... but for the elderly lady it's her dear,dear, little brother who is really playing!! A must see for fans of French cinema !!
