Lucie Aubrac

The plodding style and dramatic cliches of this historical thriller-romance could, I suppose, be deliberate allusions to classic modes of filmmaking: an interrogation scene includes a low-angle close-up of a Nazi officer's black leather boots, and the movie is dominated by blandly frontal, static, and symmetrical compositions. But the based-on-a-true-story account of the efforts of a member of the French Resistance to free her husband after he's been incarcerated and sentenced to death makes for a tiresome antidrama populated mainly by unambiguously good characters who might as well be invulnerable. Writer-director Claude Berri based the screenplay on a book by the real Lucie Aubrac. With Carole Bouquet and Daniel Auteuil.
