Memoir of War

A Feature film by Emmanuel Finkiel

Produced by Les Films du Poisson, Cinéfrance Studios

Release in France : 24/01/2018


    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.
