Jesse Eisenberg stars in the true story of Jewish Boy Scouts joining the French Resistance to save over 10,000 orphans from the Nazis in World War Two. Eisenberg plays famous mime artist Marcel Marceau who, together with a group of activists, fights to rescue Jewish orphans from ruthless Nazis and take them safely across the Swiss border.
Story Line that I was not Aware Of
- Resistance review by AA
Very watchable film about the exploits of Marcel Marceau during WW2 to assist in the rescue of Jewish orphans and their safe transfer over the SWISS Border, despite the efforts of Klaus Barbie aka The Butcher of Lyon, to stop them. The film is helped by an outstanding performance by Jesse Eisenberg as Marcel Marceau and a supporting cast with special mention of the children/teenagers that were outstanding!
