Memoir of WarLA DOULEUR /MEMOIR OF WAR (12) FRANCE 2017 FINKIEL, EMMANUEL £15.99
Based on Marguerite Duras’ ‘La douleur’, the film tells the wartime story of Duras’ husband Robert Antelme, a communist resistance fighter who was arrested by the Germans in 1944 and sent to a Nazi concentration camp.

Duras begins a relationship with French Gestapo agent, Pierre Rabier, in an effort to find her husband. But does Rabier really want to help her? Or is he trying to dig up information about the anti-Nazi underground?

After the end of the war François Mitterrand found Antelme in a terrible state while visiting the Dachau concentration camp and organised his return to Paris. Marguerite Duras looked after Antelme and wrote La Douleur about his return. She divorced him soon after he regained his health, but they remained friends.
