What would you have done when, in June 1940, the French Army collapses, and suddenly the Wehrmacht has come to your little village, not far from Switzerland, and the supposedly free region of the Vichy government? Would you try to live life as usual? become a collaborator? join, or at least help, the resistance? (Remember that at this period, Hitler and Stalin were still embracing one another as allies, which makes things all the more difficult if you're a communist).

Emotionally gripping and gritty, but if you're looking for a French Downton Abbey, look elsewhere. This ain't it.
PS: At the moment it seems you will need an all-region player for these disks, which are PAL, not NTSC. And you will need some knowledge of French; subtitles for the hard of hearing are there, but they're in French.

I bought seasons 1-5 of this show and I was hooked by about 2 mins in. A absolutely fantastic series, though yes, you will need at least conversational french knowledge to follow it. Only seasons 1 and 5 had french subtitles.
It gives you a window into the lives of people from all sides. The Germans, the french villagers who just want to get by, the collaborators and the conflicts between De Gualle and Communist resistance groups and the Maquis. Beautifully and tastefully done.
Highly anticipating Season 6 as Season 5 left us with a lot of cliffhangers.

Only downside, this does not have english subtitles which means that, while raving about this show to my friends, none of them will be able to watch it. They don't speak french.
