A German refugee and french woman fall in love just before the Nazis invade Paris in WWII.
2 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent movie. It shows many facets of WWII Paris. Acts of bravery as well as cowardice. There are some intense moments throughout the film that keep you deeply engaged. If you are interested in WWII, lesbianism, or just historical drama, this movie is enjoyable and well made. I think it was mainly German language, with some French, but the version I watched had English subtitles. The relationship between the two main characters is believable and sweet, although many of the kisses are fairly clumsy and poorly done. I think is a fairly progressive movie for 1985 though. The ending scene is very reminiscent of Head in the Clouds, which is probably another movie you should check out if you like this one. Hard movie to find though, I watched it on Youtube, and I think some scenes may have been cut short/missing. I don't think Netflix has it.
