AUGUST 6 at 5 PM: Memoir of War (La Douleur) 

France 2018 – DCP – 127 minutes, In French with English subtitles. Director: Emmanuel Finkiel; Based on the novel by Marguerite Duras, Cast: Mélanie Thierry, Benoît Magimel, Benjamin Biolay.

Memoir of War is a haunting and hypnotic adaptation of seminal author Marguerite Duras’ autobiographical novel, The War: A Memoir. In 1944 Nazi-occupied Paris, Marguerite Duras (Thierry) is an active Resistance member alongside her husband.

When he is deported to Dachau, she tries to free him in a high-risk game of psychological cat and mouse with French Nazi collaborators. Through subtly expressionistic images and voiceover passages of Duras’s writing, director Emmanuel Finkiel evokes the inner world of this revolutionary writer—and creates one of the most memorable movies of the year.
