The Sorrow and the Pity

The Sorrow and the Pity

From 1940 to 1944, France’s Vichy government collaborated with Nazi Germany. Marcel Ophüls mixes archival footage with 1969 interviews of a German officer and of collaborators and resistance fighters from Clermont-Ferrand. They comment on the nature, details and reasons for the collaboration, from anti-Semitism, xenophobia, and fear of Bolsheviks, to simple caution. Part one, “The Collapse,” includes an extended interview with Pierre Mendès-France, jailed for anti-Vichy action and later France’s Prime Minister. At the heart of part two, “The Choice,” is an interview with Christian de la Mazière, one of 7,000 French youth to fight on the eastern front wearing German uniforms.

The Sorrow and the Pity 123movies review

The 251 minutes flew by almost imperceptibly on 123movies, thanks to the excellent acting and the incredibly twisted plot of the beautiful film The Sorrow and the Pity.

It seems to me that I have not seen anything similar in the genre Best Documentaries, Documentary, History, War for a long time, the plot of the film is so unpredictable that until the last moment I did not know what would happen in the ending.

In 1969 there were so many great films that I watched on 123movies, but this one is not at all like the others, with its storyline it just won my heart as a moviegoer.

I really like this unique work of , because it is simply impossible to forget such a complicated story, and to throw the heroes out of the heart forever.

The sensuality and emotionality of Georges Bidault, Maurice Chevalier deserves special attention and praise, the film that I watched on 123movies, thanks to this, acquired its characteristic bright colors.
