In Brief: "Lucie Aubrac"

ShareThis

Claude Berri's Lucie Aubrac, set in 1943, is based on the true account of a woman in the French Resistance (Carole Bouquet) who engineered the liberation of her husband (Daniel Auteuil), also a Resistance fighter, from Montluc prison in Lyon during the German occupation. It's not a particularly artful piece of work, but the best parts -- the way Lucie methodically, implacably sets up the Germans and the French Fascist militia -- have the dash of first-rate melodrama.
