Storyline

1942. Joseph is eleven. And this June morning, he must go to school, a yellow star sewn on his chest. He receives the support of a goods dealer. The mockery of a baker. Between kindness and contempt, Jo, his Jewish friends, their families, learn of life in an occupied Paris, on the Butte Montmartre, where they've taken shelter. At least that's what they think, until that morning on July 16th 1942, when their fragile happiness is toppled over. From the Vélodrome D'Hiver, where 13 000 Jews are crammed, to the camp of Beaune-La-Rolande, from Vichy to the terrace of the Berghof, La Rafle follows the real destinies of the victims and the executioners. Of those who orchestrated it all. Of those who trusted them. Of those who fled. Of those who opposed them. Every character in this film has existed. Every event, even the most extreme, transpired on that summer of 1942. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Trivia

Stenciled on the side of the French boxcars that the Jewish people from the Velodrome are loaded into says: HOMMES - 40, CHEVAUX - 8. This marking was used even in World War 1 to limit overloading the cars. It meant they could carry either 40 Men or 8 Horses. There is a veteran's organization within the American Legion called 40 et 8 (40 and 8) based on this which uses the boxcar and French railway related words and titles as their theme. American Legion Post #1 is located in Pershing Hall, Paris, France. See more »

a very good movie
6 May 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Once in a while, pictures like this one make you understand and see things you don't want or did not want to see : here's a example of why cinema is so important. A forgotten drama in France 1942 that you can read in books of history but not actually see. Like the Schindler's list, La Rafle is a touching art of work and the fact that the kids are taking a big place in the movie give the all thing a unforgettable moment of emotions... and cinema. Cannot say more : you have to watch this movie to be sure you have the right image of what what France was in that period of time. Especially because the director show that french people, unlike their police, behave in a very human way (helping families and children). Great movie !
