Plot: A faithful retelling of the 1942 "Vel' d'Hiv Roundup" and the events surrounding it. Full summary » |  »

Story: 1942. Joseph is eleven. And this June morning, he must go to school, a yellow star sewn on his chest. He receives the support of a goods dealer. The mockery of a baker. Between kindness and contempt, Jo, his Jewish friends, their families, learn of life in an occupied Paris, on the Butte Montmartre, where they've taken shelter. At least that's what they think, until that morning on July 16th 1942, when their fragile happiness is toppled over. From the Vélodrome D'Hiver, where 13 000 Jews are crammed, to the camp of Beaune-La-Rolande, from Vichy to the terrace of the Berghof, La Rafle follows the real destinies of the victims and the executioners. Of those who orchestrated it all. Of those who trusted them. Of those who fled. Of those who opposed them. Every character in this film has existed. Every event, even the most extreme, transpired on that summer of 1942.Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

    OK, it's not a superb film but, all the same, it is a decent depictionof the extermination of the Jews in Paris. The acting is very good,both by Jean Reno and Melanie Laurent as well. Even the child actorsgive good performances in general. There is nothing special orsurprising regarding the plot, and most of the themes have already beenpresented effectively in other films, but this fact does not make thefilm bad in any way. The film manages to hold the tension and itsucceeds in being moving at the same time. All in all, I watched thismovie with undiminished interest from the beginning till the end and Ithink it deserves a higher rating than 5.6/10, as well as yourattention

    This powerful and deeply moving film depicts one of the most shockingand shameful episodes of French history. In July 1942 the Frenchpolice, at the direction of the Nazis, rounded up thousands of Jewishcitizens and detained them in appalling conditions in the Parisvelodrome for several days. The detainees were then shipped to a campoutside Paris for a period of time before they were subsequentlytransported to the extermination camps in Poland. This incident was thebackdrop for the recent Sarah's Key, which starred Kristen ScottThomas. But here the subject matter is far more powerful, harrowing andultimately poignant. There is no doubting the anger and disgust felt bywriter/director Rose Bosche at these events. She handles some of thegruesome brutalities and atrocities in an unflinching fashion thatheightens their impact on the audience. A note at the start of the filminforms us that all the events depicted here actually happened, eventhe most extreme. The film also occasionally cuts away from thedepravities endured by the Jews to shots of a smiling and laughingHitler (Udo Schenk) enjoying his retreat high in the picturesque GermanAlps. The events largely unfold from the perspective of eleven-year oldJo Weismann (Hugo Leverdez) who managed to escape from the camp beforehis family was sent East. Of the 4500 children sent to the camps, nonesurvived, and only 25 adults survived. Jean Reno lends his formidablepresence to the role of a sympathetic doctor who worked amongst theprisoners. Melanie Laurent is also deeply affecting as a dutiful nursewho is appalled by what she witnesses and tries to inform theauthorities, to little avail. Not to be missed!

    On 06 June 1942, the government of Vichy makes a deal with the Nazisand delivers thousands of Jewish families to be sent to theconcentration Camp of Beaune-La-Rolande, Loiret and then to thecrematories.

    "La Rafle" is another touching and heartbreaking film that shows thefate of some Jewish families that are removed by force from their homesto the final destination of a crematory. The cruelty of the fate of theJewish in occupied Europe in the 40's is composed of millions of tragicstories; therefore films about this theme are always extremely sad andusually well-produced, shaking with the emotions of any sensitiveviewer.

    This new approach of the Holocaust, based on what happened in Franceunder the complacence of the French politicians and authorities, isvery sad since it shows the destiny of thousand of children that arefirst separated from their mothers and then send to death. It is cruelbut never comparable to the "Sophia's Choice", for me the mostdepressive film about mother and children relationship ever made. Myvote is six.

    Title (Brazil): "Amor e Ódio" ("Love and Hate")

    This movie has all I want in a film, it is informing and holds theattention. I am a great admirer of Jean Reno and he comes over here asgood as ever. The acting in general was excellent and the child actorswere superb with such a difficult storyline. The music fitted well tothe story and allowed the feel of the movie to shine through. In all agreat film which stirs the blood and makes one feel ashamed to behuman. It is important to remember what happened and why we shouldnever let it happen again, however it seems that it happens now and wedo nothing about it. Long live the French film school, with a tear inmy eye I end this review and think again of the many who died without acause.

    Once in a while, pictures like this one make you understand and seethings you don't want or did not want to see : here's a example of whycinema is so important. A forgotten drama in France 1942 that you canread in books of history but not actually see. Like the Schindler'slist, La Rafle is a touching art of work and the fact that the kids aretaking a big place in the movie give the all thing a unforgettablemoment of emotions… and cinema. Cannot say more : you have to watchthis movie to be sure you have the right image of what what France wasin that period of time. Especially because the director show thatfrench people, unlike their police, behave in a very human way (helpingfamilies and children). Great movie !

    I loved this film that I consider as a great achievement on a difficulttopic : the deportation of men, women and children in death camps. Theactors are well directed (and what about children who are supertouching!) and i have recognized Jean reno (from the "Big blue" ansLeon movies). That film is poignant, unforgettable, very well done by awoman, Rose Bosh (is she french ?), who has already written the scriptfor Ridley Scott, 1492. A Reference. I recommend this movie at all bothfor its educational aspect, historic for its great evocative power.Because it is something that unfortunately is universal, it forces allconsciences to think and be revolted. Long live the cinema when itallows reflection, and moved much better than a book to remember allthose people who have suffered from tyranny and hate.

    This film recounts the story of the July 16, 1942 round-up of 24,000non-French Jews who had flooded into Paris in the years preceding theoccupation to escape Nazi oppression in their homelands. However, themass-arrest netted less than half the expected number because of thesympathies and help of Paris' non-Jewish inhabitants who warned and hidtheir non-French Jewish neighbours.

    This film is predictably poignant because it focuses on the children ofthese captured Jews. Their story is based on evidence recounted bysurvivors and witnesses to the events, and as is often the case, truthis stranger than fiction, especially when it comes to stories ofhumanity.

    What is unique about this film is how the relationship of Jews andnon-Jews and how the sympathies of Parisians to their Nazi occupiers isconveyed. Every shade of humanity is depicted from an anti-semiticneighbourhood baker, and bullying police, to acts of kindness shown byfiremen and neighbours, and of course the main character, a nurse whovolunteers to care for the interned Jews. Interspersed with this storyare snippets of Hitler and Eva at Berchtesgaden with Adolf shownalternatively as a loving 'uncle' to the children of the Nazi elite, oras a madman planning the destruction of the Jewish people.

    This is an extremely well written, directed and acted film. The subjectmatter may not be new, but this story is fresh.

    Beautiful French, poignant, moving film. Actors play their roles verywell, the action is poignant but relentless and it discovers withhorror all the misfortune which was shot down on all of these familiesduring the second world war. The action takes place in France but couldtakes place in Greece or Hungary where happened the same thing. Thedifference is that many French helped French Jews to hide and avoidthis horrible mass arrest of Jews requested by the Nazis but performed,with zeal, by the French police. Sad moment in the history of Francewhich was strangely rarely shown at the cinema. This film repair thisoversight with dignity, accuracy, rendering justice to all those whohave behaved with honor, and in particular those they call "the just",these men and women taking risks to help their Jewish compatriots,often at the peril of their life. in line with the "Schindler's list",this film worth seeing many times.

  9. Martin-24-931887 from United States

    I would characterize this movie as a French Schindler's List. itcorrects the record on a disgraceful series of events that took placein occupied France in 1942, leading to the murder of13,000 Jews. It iswell balanced, interesting, but also highly emotional. The acting issuperb, as is the direction and cinematography. In particular, thechild actors did a wonderful job. People could be heard crying in thetheater throughout the film.

    I had some problems with the ending, but won't go further as I do notwant to reveal too much.

    I recommend this movie.

    Here is a film extremely dense, deep, moving that allows us to look ona dark period of war. the action takes place in France, Paris, wherethousands of Jews were arrested by French police in the heart of summer1942. Behind this mass arrest (men,women and children are gathered intoa huge stadium in inhumane conditions), there is the direct linkbetween the Nazi regime applying to the French Government to deportfrench Jews and the excess of zeal of French police who will send todeath unscrupulously thousands of this people, more than asked by theNazis themselves ! Few people will return from the death camps. Thisfilm, directed by Rose Bosh is excellent and well documented. Because awoman is behind the camera , it gives a special sensitivity to the allthing and explains the way the children for example are filmed. I agreewith people who liked this film. Powerful,moving, educational.
