Loved It, See It
22 April 2018 | by slocumjohnoSee all my reviews

A story of the unbreakable bonds of family with the backdrop of being Jewish in France during the Nazi occupation. I didn't read the book or see the original 1975 movie version, I loved this movie.

The fact that it is a true story makes it even more important. Why can't we see more movies like this?

My favorite part was when Jo observes that no matter who you meet in France, whatever their outward actions are, you still see fear in their eyes.
