Paris, 1942. Lucas Steiner is a Jew and was compelled to leave the country. His wife Marion, an actress, directs the theater for him. She tries to keep the theater alive with a new play, and hires Bernard Granger for the leading role. But Lucas is actually hiding in the basement... A film about art and life.


A beautiful love/war story I saw this film and was immediately involved with it. I feel for both Bernard and Marion. Love does conquer all, even the Occupation. This was incredibly entertaining, and I always wondered what would happen next. It made me laugh, then cry, then laugh again.
