Do you remember the mime, Marcel Marceau? Did you know that he was in the French Resistance during World War II?

Neither did I.

As the Nazi war machine devours Europe, a young actor must make a decision on how to best be of help.

First warning: This movie gets very grim, on occasion, especially when dealing with Klaus Barbie; this not really a family-friendly film. That being said, this is one of the most gripping films I have seen in a while and I wore out the edge of my seat while watching it. There are several narratives: Marcel, his father, Elsbeth, and the scary Nazi Barber, etc., that are skillfully entwined. Eisenberg is perfect as the actor who struggles to find his place in the Resistance.

I highly recommend this one, although it’s not all fun and games. There are no post-credit scenes.

Flytrap rating: 8/10
