An amazing portrayal of one of the many unique and intriguing stories that came out of the World War 2.era. A must see for anyone that appreciates film.

Excellent cast; very well filmed. The story is slightly soap-operaish and slightly predictable - nonetheless, the movie is a powerful and intimate look at life in occupied France.

Loved this movie. It was beautifully, filmed, acted and was so touching that I I can't remember seeing a film lately that affected me so deeply. Don't miss it.
