“The script highlights the brothers’ resilience, as well as their vulnerability.” Jerusalem Post

Occupied France, 1942. As the German army advances towards Paris, brothers Maurice and Joseph have to leave their loving family behind in pursuit of safety in the south of the country. Their courage and hope of being reunited with their family when the war ends, keeps them alive – and together. Based on the autobiographical novel by Joseph Joffo, A Bag of Marbles is a heart-rending tale of the incredible power of brotherly love.
