Synopsis

October 1941. Eighteen months into France’s occupation by German troops, young Communist members of the Resistance shoot dead an officer of the German Army. In retaliation, Hitler demands the deaths of 150 Frenchmen, as ‘retribution’.

Our take

We travel to occupied France of the Second World War with New German Cinema maverick and Palme d’Or-winning director Volker Schlöndorff. No stranger to the urgency of historical drama, Schlöndorff sheds light on a wrenching wartime tragedy infamous in France but relatively unknown here—until now.
