Product Description
IN FRENCH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
The blockbuster French drama, A French Village (Un Village Francais), starring Audrey Fleurot and Thierry Godard (Spiral) chronicles the impact of World War II on a small village in central France. The German occupation changes the life of the village of Villeneuve forever, and as its residents come under the pressures of war, they make choices that are inspiring and heartbreaking. In this gripping drama, ordinary citizens become patriots, traitors, Nazi employees or activists. Beginning with the Germans arrival in June 1940, they endure five years of rationing, fighting and betrayals, and strain to keep some semblance of their existence intact. The war shatters all their lives, but a few of them, even in the shadow of destruction, reach out to find fleeting moments of connection and love.

    5HORTENSE IN THE HALL OF MIRRORS
    By Hank Napkin
    A fine and deeply considered conclusion to a sometimes uneven series. [ (1) if there can ever be a genuine conclusion to events as horrific as those which took place during the second world war and (2) i'm thinking about the seemingly endless play-within-a-play that unfolded in the forest in an earlier series, as the Resistance focused on casting and staging a drama while the Nazis went about their work pretty much unimpeded. ]

    At turns more lyrical, more poetic, more artful and more deliberate than the preceding series, 6 also features some wonderfully considered cinematography. Just take note of the manner in which many key scenes physically and visually separate the characters; split by doorways, halls, windows, bars, street level to basement, or the screen of the confessional, we are constantly reminded not of peace, but of the divisions brought to the surface by war's end.

    Deeply affecting, and largely unflinching, 6 is the drama of history finding its best expression. Not to imply 1-5 are not worth your time and money. The cumulative effect is not unlike what Luis Bunuel achieved at the end of Tristana: the torrent of realizations, nightmares and years of abuse compressed into a few crippling moments.

    5This Entire Series is Great!
    By SpartyGrl02
    I've watched the entire series, and it is really well done. It makes you think about how you would have acted if you had lived in a small village that ended up being occupied by the opposition during WWII. No one in the series is completely perfect and they all do things that are questionable, sometimes for more selfish motives and other times to help others. There is a lot of "grey area" here and you really do have to consider what the appropriate reaction would be given the circumstances. Even the German officers go against what they are told to do and work with some of the French people. Many movies/TV shows set during WWII are often fairly black and white - this one shows a lot of the grey and shows the difficult situations people were placed in, on both sides, and the choices they had to make because of it.
