The legendary Daniel Auteuil is riveting in this gripping adaptation by writer/director Fred Cavayé of the multi–Molière Award-winning play.

In Detail

In 1941 in occupied Paris, Jews were instructed to identify themselves by wearing a yellow star. Fearing the worst, jeweller Joseph Haffmann (Auteuil), arranges for his family to flee the city, and offers his employee François Mercier (Lellouche) the chance to take over his store until the conflict subsides.

But his own attempts to escape are thwarte, and Haffmann is forced to seek his assistant’s protection. As the couple move into the Haffmann home, the agreement turns into a Faustian bargain. This is first-rate drama with considerable cumulative intensity – and a quorum of irony – and it’s unreservedly recommended.

Cast includes Daniel Auteuil, Gilles Lellouche, Sara Giraudeau and Mathilde Bisson.
