Storyline

During WW2, a posh bourgeois woman ,Juliette,is forced to live under the same room as a crude simple-minded yet kind man. Her husband was arrested by the Gestapo and she is a hunted woman . Their neighbors are a Jewish family with a little girl.In a very simple but moving way,we see the absurdity of Anti-Semitism:both families get on very well,they drink lemonade,make music and celebrate Christmas together.The most beautiful scene is perhaps the moment when the two boys and the girl are eating bread and are pretending they're savoring chicken.
