Memoir of War
by FINKIEL Emmanuel
This film will represent France at the Oscars awards in 2019.
Synopsis: In the 1944 Nazi-occupied France, young talented writer Marguerite is an active Resistance member with her husband Robert Antelme. When he is deported by the Gestapo, she dives into a desperate struggle to get him back. She develops a chilling relationship with local Vichy collaborator Rabier and takes terrible risks to save Robert, playing a cat-and-mouse of unpredictable meetings all over Paris. Does he really want to help her? Or is he trying to dig up information about the anti-Nazi underground? Then come the end of the war and the return of camp victims, an excruciating period for her, and a long and silent agony after the chaos of the Liberation of Paris. But she continues to wait, bound to the torment of absence even beyond hope.
