Storyline

1942. Joseph is eleven. And this June morning, he must go to school, a yellow star sewn on his chest. He receives the support of a goods dealer. The mockery of a baker. Between kindness and contempt, Jo, his Jewish friends, their families, learn of life in an occupied Paris, on the Butte Montmartre, where they've taken shelter. At least that's what they think, until that morning on July 16th 1942, when their fragile happiness is toppled over. From the Vélodrome D'Hiver, where 13 000 Jews are crammed, to the camp of Beaune-La-Rolande, from Vichy to the terrace of the Berghof, La Rafle follows the real destinies of the victims and the executioners. Of those who orchestrated it all. Of those who trusted them. Of those who fled. Of those who opposed them. Every character in this film has existed. Every event, even the most extreme, transpired on that summer of 1942. Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Poignant and great picture !!
8 May 2011 | by elean35See all my reviews

I loved this film that I consider as a great achievement on a difficult topic : the deportation of men, women and children in death camps. The actors are well directed (and what about children who are super touching!) and i have recognized Jean reno (from the "Big blue" ans Leon movies). That film is poignant, unforgettable, very well done by a woman, Rose Bosh (is she french ?), who has already written the script for Ridley Scott, 1492. A Reference. I recommend this movie at all both for its educational aspect, historic for its great evocative power. Because it is something that unfortunately is universal, it forces all consciences to think and be revolted. Long live the cinema when it allows reflection, and moved much better than a book to remember all those people who have suffered from tyranny and hate.
