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

Beautiful French, poignant, moving film
9 May 2011 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

Beautiful French, poignant, moving film. Actors play their roles very well, the action is poignant but relentless and it discovers with horror all the misfortune which was shot down on all of these families during the second world war. The action takes place in France but could takes place in Greece or Hungary where happened the same thing. The difference is that many French helped French Jews to hide and avoid this horrible mass arrest of Jews requested by the Nazis but performed, with zeal, by the French police. Sad moment in the history of France which was strangely rarely shown at the cinema. This film repair this oversight with dignity, accuracy, rendering justice to all those who have behaved with honor, and in particular those they call "the just", these men and women taking risks to help their Jewish compatriots, often at the peril of their life. in line with the "Schindler's list", this film worth seeing many times.
