This one’s not for everyone. It’s in French; it’s historical fiction; and the bulk of the movie is a long conversation in Paris between two World War II historical figures at the war’s end. If that sounds good to you, then this one’s probably worth a try. Because of the long conversation and the claustrophobia induced by a story occuring almost entirely in a single room, it felt like the script had come from a stage play. Sure enough, as the credits rolled, this fact was confirmed. However, I did find the acting by French veterans André Dussollier and Niels Arestrup, both three-time César winners, to be compelling.
