Safe Conduct

Aka "Laissez-Passer". Set in German occupied France during World War II, "Safe Conduct" is based on the actual war time experiences of assistant director Jean Devaivre (Jacques Gamblin) and screenwriter Jean Aurenche (Denis Podalydes). The two men struggle to maintain their integrity while working for the German controlled Continental Film Studios. Aurenche has a complicated love life and injects his scripts with subversive messages, while Devaivre uses his position as a cover for his increasingly hazardous activities with the Resistance. Both a suspenseful drama and historical epic, this fascinating and engrossing film is co-written and directed by Bertrand Tavernier ("Life and Nothing But").
