In Emmanuel Finkiel’s haunting adaptation of Marguerite Duras’s semi-autobiographical novel, The War: A Memoir, the famed author (Mélanie Thierry) recounts an emotionally complex story of love, loss, and perseverance against a backdrop of wartime intrigue in 1944 Nazi-occupied France. Using subtly expressionistic imagery and voiceover passages of Duras’s writing, Finkiel evokes the inner world of one of the 20th century’s most revolutionary writers. In French with English subtitles. (2h 07min). Free.
