whatever your favorite medium, watch or read
on November 19, 2016
I am not sure what moved me more, the book or the film. It probably doesn't matter, whatever your favorite medium, watch or read. The story kept me spellbound. The author''s style and the film's as well was to move back and forth through time from the roundup of the Parisian Jews in the summer of 1942 to a more or less contemporary time focusing on an American journalist living in Paris with her husband and daughter. The journalist is investigating and writing a story about the roundup as it is the 60th anniversary of the event. In the course of her investigation she discovers something very sad and, in a way, personal. Experience it. We mustn't forget the horrors that we can inflict upon one another. Her relentless search for a "truth" that is important to her is inspiring. A comedy this isn't.
