Storyline

A young Jewish girl looking to escape the clutches of the Third Reich after seeing her parents and sister brutally slain while attempting to make their way to England is sheltered by an old friend whose status as a member of the "third" sex soon leads the Gestapo pounding on his door as well. Betrayed by a smuggler who sat idly by as her family was casually slaughtered by the SS, terrified Sara flees into the comforting care of childhood summer-vacation chum Jean and his faithful lover Philippe. Though safe for the moment thanks to Jean's quick-thinking plan to pass her off as a Gallic employee of his family's laundry business, Sara watches in horror as her homosexual protector is forced into a Nazi labor camp as a tragic result of a bad decision made by Jean's troublesome brother Jacques.

Well-crafted, well-acted but devastatingly emotional
27 June 2006 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

At the film festival where I saw this film, even jaded film veterans were unprepared for its emotional wallop. This is one of the few films dealing with gay persecution during the Nazi era. It works unflinchingly to ground the material in both a French and German Nazi context. Its brutal but honest portrayal tests the viewer's tolerance for the horrific. Yet this film manages to be subtle, nuanced and rich not only through its script, but also in its period depiction, and lastly, in its dramatic execution. Obviously a work of love, this film conveys much of what is worst and best of humanity set in 1942 during the upheaval of Nazi-occupied Paris.
