The Sorrow and the Pity

A staggering documentary detailing the Nazi occupation of France during World War II. Combining interviews and archival film footage, director Marcel Ophuls speaks to Resistance fighters, collaborators, spies, farmers, government officials, writers, artists and veterans. The result is a shattering portrait of how ordinary people actually conducted themselves under extraordinary circumstances. 'A magnificent documentary epic' - Pauline Kael, The New Yorker.
