Memoir of War 12A

Fri 28 Jun – Mon 1 Jul


Synopsis


"★★★★★ – brilliant rendering of Duras novel" – RTE


Based on Marguerite Duras’ semi-autobiographical novel La Douleur, compiled from diaries she kept during the Nazi occupation of France. Marguerite – played with magnetic grace by Melanie Thierry – desperately seeks news about her prisoner-of-war husband Robert.


Meeting a French agent working for the Gestapo, Marguerite proves herself willing to undertake extraordinary risks to find the man she loves.


A dreamlike rumination on love, loss, grief, and one woman’s force of will in the face of unrelenting chaos.

Dir: Emmanuel Finkiel

Cast: Mélanie Thierry, Benoît Magimel
