Plot Summary

France, 1940. In the first days of occupation, beautiful Lucile Angellier (Michelle Williams) is trapped in a stifled existence with her controlling mother-in-law (Kristin Scott Thomas) as they both await news of her husband: a prisoner of war. Parisian refugees start to pour into their small town, soon followed by a regiment of German soldiers who take up residence in the villagers' own homes. Lucile initially tries to ignore Bruno von Falk (Matthias Schoenaerts), the handsome and refined German officer staying with them. But soon, a powerful love draws them together and leads them into the tragedy of war. Written by Polly_Kat

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The movie is based on Irène Némirovsky's unfinished book "Suite Française" and focuses on the novel "Dolce". The book was only found after Némirovsky's death at a concentration camp in Auschwitz in 1942. Her elder daughter, Denise Epstein, kept the notebook containing the manuscript of Suite Française for fifty years without reading it, believing that it would indeed be a journal or diary too painful to read. In the late 1990s, however, having made arrangements to donate her mother's papers to a French archive, Denise decided to examine the notebook first. At last discovering what it contained, she instead had it published in France, where it became a bestseller in 2004. See more »
Goofs The comment citing the mentions in the film of French dying in Normandy as a factual error is wrong. The French and British were engaged in ferocious fighting with the Germans in Normandy in 1940, following the evacuation at Dunkirk. So the references in the film to Frenchmen dying in Normandy are in fact correct. See more »
