This moving story of human courage and the desire for freedom was adapted from the highly acclaimed book by Joseph Joffo written about his family and their experiences during World War II.
The film boasts stunning cinematography by Christophe Graillot with fine performances from its two main actors aged just 17 and 12-years-old.
It is a story about the bond forged between two young brothers fleeing from Nazi persecution. The film beautifully explores Joseph and Maurice’s growing resilience and vulnerability.
It follows the rhythm, comedy and tragedy of the boys’ journey, often in the course of a single scene.
“There are many highpoints in A Bag of Marbles and the French countryside has never looked more beautiful. Canadian Director Duguay manipulates our emotions so we don’t dismiss the sacrifices many made so we would be able to grow up in a ‘better’ world. With the changing of the guard generation wise, it is important these stories remain in the public psyche, lest we forget.” Carolyn McDowall, The Culture Concept Circle
