Trivia

The agreement for the crew to film in Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val, France was that they must allow the local residents to be filmed as extras. Because of this, most of the citizens seen in the Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val shots are real citizens of the town. See more »

Goofs

In some shots of the departing deportation train, it can clearly be seen that the goods wagons used bear the inscription "UIC St" and a rather long wagon number. Both things belong to the international UIC numbering system, not introduced before 1965. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Charlotte Gray: [narration] It all seemed so simple. We were at war. The Nazis were the enemy. And because good must triumph over evil, so we would triumph over them. How could we have know that war ever trades in such certainty? That we are nothing is unthinkable. Anything could be true. Even a lie.

Take the drama and intelligent dialogue from the era in which this movie is set (1940s) and play it out with the sophisticated filming techniques and cinematography of today and you might begin to get an idea of how great this movie is.
