Screening at JW3, Glasgow Film Theatre, Chichester Cinema and Northampton Filmhouse as part of our UK Jewish Film: Back to the Cinema summer season.
France, 1940. Defying logic, Janot Reichenbach, a wealthy Jewish woman, decides to not flee the German-occupied country with her husband and son. Instead, she joins socialist politician and three-time Prime Minister Léon Blum, with whom she fell madly in love when she was only sixteen but kept apart from all these years, in the free zone. Determined to stay with Blum at all costs, she follows him as he is moved from France to Buchenwald, where they are both imprisoned. Elsa Zylberstein (A Bag of Marbles) shines as a woman who is willing to sacrifice all she has for love.
Premiered in the UK at the 2020 UK Jewish Film Festival
