Lucie Aubrac ★★ 1998 (R)

In 1943, having freed her Resistance fighter husband, Raymond Samuel (Auteuil), from the Vichy police, Lucie Aubrac (Bouquet), is not about to let the Germans execute him. Even if it means using her pregnancy and tricking Gestapo commander Klaus Barbie (Ferch). Noble but rather emotionless. Based on a true story and Aubrac's novel “Ils Partiront Dans l'Ivresse.” French with subtitles. 116m/C VHS .
