Storyline

Ilva runs her stepfather's Eden Palace cinema in wartime Paris against a background of Resistance activities, the frequent sight of less fortunate Parisians being shipped east in cattle-trains and, later, the impact of the D-Day landings. Over time a number of other lives intersect with hers, including a German officer and then two American servicemen. A post-war shooting comes to dominate her story along, perhaps surprisingly, with cinema itself. Written by J-26

A film of the highest caliber...
9 October 2011 | by shane013a-1See all my reviews

This film can leave one simultaneously with a feeling of exhilaration and exhausted to the point of tears! Seldom have I gone to a movie with expectations as high as this one to satisfied without even being asked,and I watch up to ten a week! The five stories,based on true events in the life of Mr. LeLouch,are interwoven into a story of epic proportion with scenes shot in the very spots where they happened. What could have been old stories of the 'war years' retold were given to us instead with a gut-wrenching, joyously vibrant story of love and betrayal usually reserved for those epics of the bygone era of Hollywood. This combined with acting pulled from the souls of basic unknowns ,some of whom begged for the parts,poured off of the screen to wash over the audience with so much more then we have come to expect these days...a true film going experience. See this with an audience on the big screen if you can, if not gather some of your closest friends around you and plenty of wine and tissues. I will only say that I've waited a long time to feel this way about a movie, thanks Mr. L.
