“Memoir of War (La Douleur)”

A haunting and hypnotic adaptation of seminal author Marguerite Duras’s autobiographical novel The War: A Memoir. It’s 1944 in Nazi-occupied France, and Marguerite (Mélanie Thierry) and her husband are active members of the Resistance. When he is deported to Dachau, she desperately struggles to find him, entering into a high-risk game of psychological cat-and-mouse with a French Nazi collaborator. But when months go by without word of the man she loves, Marguerite must begin to confront the unimaginable. Through subtly expressionistic images and voiceover passages of Duras’s writing, director Emmanuel Finkiel evokes the inner world of one of the 20th century’s most revolutionary writers.

Directed by Emmanuel Finkiel (Narrative, 2018, France, 127 minutes, French with English subtitles)
