A True Story Where the Altruism of a Man Makes the Difference
6 September 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the beginning of the Second World War, Germans, Austrians and persons without nationality living in France are sent to the concentration camp of Les Milles by France government. Commander Charles Perrochon is the responsible for this camp and he promises to the leaders of the prisoners to protect them from the Nazis. When France is invaded by the Germans, Commander Perronchon will disobey orders and his superiors trying to save these men. He gets a train, a ship and money from USA to send about eight hundred of these prisoners to the safety of Casablanca, in Marrocos. The ironic end of this trial unfortunately is history and can not be changed. This movie is not a bad movie, but could be a great one. The screenwriter and the director should have extended much more in the political situation of France and Europe in 1940. Maybe this history is well-known in France, but I am in Brazil and I have never heard about this fact. I believe that viewers from many countries are in the same situation as me. Further, at least some important prisoners should be presented more carefully and deeply, maybe showing their lives before being arrested, to make the viewer understand their importance or social condition and be sympathetic with them. The way these prisoners are showed makes the viewer have no charisma with them. Such a beautiful true story deserved to be more carefully transported to the screens. The way this film is presented, only the altruism and outstanding personality of Charles Perronchon is showed. But, for example, it is not explained the cold relationship between his wife and him. The role of Phillipe Noiret is also too small for such a great actor. The brunet Kristin Scott Thomas has also a small but important character in the plot. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Expresso Para a Liberdade" ("Express For the Freedom")
