Ciné-Club - Memoir of War

  • Wednesday October 24, 2018

Every month, the Alliance Française de Hong Kong is screening a French movie to give you an opportunity to discover French cinema. 

This October, we will be showing Memoir of War by Emmanual Finkiel (original title : La douleur).

Drama - 126 min 
Starring: Mélanie Thierry, Benoit Magimel, Benjamin Biolay.

Adapted from Marguerite Duras's classic The War: A Memoir (originally titled La Douleur, in French, which translates directly to the more evocative title Pain), the film is a moving account of a young French Resistance writer’s agonized wait for her husband to return from Nazi capture.
