We've all seen World War II films, heard about the war and the Holocaust, read the history books, but what Free Men is, is unique. It's an adapted version of true events about the people who turned around to help Jews during the war, and in German-occupied Paris. It gives credit to those who stuck their necks out to fight for freedom despite religion, culture, and the danger of it all. It's a testament to humanity, where director Ismaël Ferroukhi really put his best foot forward, and then ran a mile. And you have to watch Tahar Rahim give such a strong performance.
It's culturally interesting and gets your heart going in more ways than one.
