This movie while highlighting the contibutions of the foreign immigrants in France to help fight against Nazism, helps put to rest the myth that all the French were part of the underground or actively working against the Nazi occupation.
In fact, the first year of occupation there was very little resistance activity - it only started in earnest after the invasion of the Soviet Union in June, 1941. In the beginning, a high percentage of the underground were communists who initiated this fight in solidarity with the Soviet Union.
IN this movie, the brave souls portrayed who were not born in France took up arms and fought - and died - to protect that country - even if it meant fighting against the French born collaborators. This fight eventually cost them their lives and their recognition for their services and sacrifices needs to be acknowledged - something this film does very well.
