VARSITY WORLD FILM WEEK ONLY - (French with English subtitles). It's 1944 Nazi-occupied France, and Marguerite is an active Resistance member along with husband Robert Antelme and a band of fellow subversives. When Antelme is deported to Dachau by the Gestapo, she becomes friendly with Nazi collaborator Rabier to learn of her husband's whereabouts. Using subtly expressionistic imagery and voiceover passages from Marguerite Duras's autobiographical The War: A Memoir, Emmanuel Finkiel evokes the inner world of one of the 20th century's most revolutionary writers.
