Everyone Has a Story To Tell

I just finished watching this film that I'd taken out from the library. "Almost Peaceful" is in French, with English subtitles. It is not by any means a great film, but it is a sensitive one that deals with Parisians, primarily Jews, after World War II, and how they come to terms with how the war has changed them, changed their personal reality.

It is nice to know that someone came up with a concept like this and with a screenplay such as this one. "The survivor" deserves another look, and gets one in this film.

This sounds like a WONDERFUL film, Pearl...I hope Netflix has it because now I would like to see it. It is a perspective hardly ever seen...And I LOVE that! Roger Ebert's review was so invitingly thourough...That line about "soap"...heartbreaking...Especially so because I know some of my relatives ended up like that.

Thanks for your visit my dear...We did have a truly lovely afternoon...In fact, I just had a call from Dianne, thanking me and saying what a special afternoon it was...I surely felt that, too!
