"A Bag of Marbles"

Primary tabs

This heartwarming adaptation of Joseph Joffo’s enduring memoir tells the story of two young Jewish boys trying to escape on their own across Nazi-occupied France. In 1941 Paris brothers Joseph and Maurice, aged 10 and 12, have so little understanding of the persecution of Jews that Joseph thinks nothing of swapping his yellow star for a bag of marbles. Their concerned parents Roman and Anna make the agonizing decision that the boys’ best chance to survive is to flee on their own south to Vichy France, where their two older brothers have found safe haven. 

Directed by Christian Duguay.
