Foreign Cinema

Foreign Cinema Series: A Bag of Marbles


Wednesday May 8, 2019
7:00 PM
A Bag of Marbles (France, 2018; NR)

The library is pleased to announce the fourth movie in our 3rd Annual “Foreign Cinema Series,” featuring eight entertaining and thought-provoking foreign films from Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Tonight's feature: A Bag of Marbles, a heartwarming 2018 adaptation of Holocaust survivor Joseph Joffo's memoir. The movie tells the story of the Nazi occupation of France through the eyes of two young Jewish boys, Joseph and Maurice. At 10 and 12, the boys have so little understanding of the persecution of Jews that Joseph thinks nothing of swapping his yellow star for a bag of marbles. Despite their naiveté, their father knows that the boys’ best chance to escape the Nazi roundup is to send them alone to Vichy France, where their older brothers have found safe haven.

Always one false move from tragedy, these tenacious urchins survive on courage, ingenuity and more than a bit of cunning as they make their precarious way through France hoping to reunite with their family. French cinema and music icon Patrick Bruel resonates as the family patriarch, while newcomers Dorian Le Clech and Batyste Fleurial register an almost agonizing vulnerability as hapless innocents trying to outrun the barbarous machinery of war. 

All movies are subtitled in English. Light refreshments will be served.

This program supported by the Friends of the Library.
