"Engaging, enthralling and entertaining in all the right ways."—Courtney Howard, FreshFiction.tv
This adaptation of Joseph Joffo's best-selling memoir evokes HOPE AND GLORY and AU REVOIR LES ENFANTS in its sharp counterpointing of boyhood nostalgia and the harsh realities of wartime life. As Nazi persecution intensifies in occupied Paris, a Jewish family separates in order to increase their chances of survival. Their two pre-teen sons set off across Free France in an odyssey filled with adventure, danger, and unexpected benefactors. In French, German, Yiddish, and Russian with English subtitles. DCP digital.
