'A Bag of Marbles (PG) France Drama 2016 M
(New Release)
Croissants-Coffee-French Wine

Directed by: Christian Duguay Starring: Dorian Le Clech, Patrick Bruel, Batyste Fleurial, Elsa Zylberstein

Based on the famous and acclaimed memoirs of Joseph Joffo, A Bag of Marbles brings a new version of his incredible story to the screen as it follows the experiences of two young Jewish boys living in France during World War II.

When Joseph Joffo was ten years old, his father (Patrick Bruel, Love at First Child, AF FFF16) gave him and his brother Maurice some money and a map and sent them on a dangerous mission to escape Nazi-occupied Paris in 1941.

Making their way to the demilitarised zone in the South, the boys become unavoidably caught in the whirlwind of war. Aided by the occasional kind soul, the two young boys swerve and dart through obstacles set by Nazi soldiers to avoid succumbing to the dreadful fate of so many others in this situation.

Christian Duguay is a filmmaker well versed on World War II issues, and his skilled direction combined with immaculate period detail and stunning scenery of the French countryside make this is an essential and moving story told from a unique perspective.

Stunning Cinematography by Christophe Graillot certainly captivated the packed audience and affected many hearts at the premiere screening at the Palace Cinema Como for the Alliance Francaise French Film Festival.

This moving story of human courage and its desire for freedom was adapted from the highly acclaimed book by Joseph Joffo written about his family and their experiences during World War II. It is a story about the bond forged between two brothers from a Jewish family, one that would stand the test of time.

French with English subtitles.
