Story Line that I was not Aware Of - Resistance review by AA

Spoiler Alert
19/09/2020

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!

Hollywood movie - Resistance review by PT

Spoiler Alert
07/01/2021

The are enough French films in this genre with grit and integrity.

This is a Hollywoodised version.

Sickly sweet take on subject matter that is worth vastly more.

Competent but disappointing drama - Resistance review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
21/01/2021

Solid, stolid biopic of how young mime artist Marcel Marceau helped save Jewish children during WW2. It’s a heroic story given due reverence, but a bitty plot, bland characters, bland dialogue and bland direction make it more of a Sunday night TV drama than a great film. The two-minute trailer is able to tell the whole story and shows snippets of what little action there is.

Sad to say, Jesse Eisenberg is miscast as Marcel and the mime scenes are embarrassing. Interest lifts only when evil Nazi Klaus Barbie appears half-way through to give us someone to boo, although it’s unlikely he’d have become so personally involved in Marcel’s affairs. It’s a film with its heart in the right place, but it won’t be remembered as a great war film.
