"Memoir of War"

Primary tabs

Emmanuel Finkiel's haunting and hypnotic adaptation of Marguerite Duras’s autobiographical novel “The War: A Memoir.”

In 1944 Nazi-occupied France, Marguerite Duras (Mélanie Thierry) is an active Resistance member along with her husband Robert Antelme. When he is deported to Dachau by the Gestapo, she dives into a desperate struggle to get him back and enters into a high-risk game of psychological cat and mouse with French Nazi collaborator Rabier (Benoît Magimel). But as the months wear on without word of the man she loves, Marguerite must begin the process of confronting the unimaginable. With Shulamit Adar as Mme. Katz, who is waiting for her daughter to return from the camps.
