WJFF 2019: Bag of Marbles

Thursday, May 2nd at 2 PM at the Cineplex Odeon, Devonshire Mall


A heartwarming, family-friendly film, similar to Louis Malle’s Au Revoir Les Enfants, that explores the Nazi treatment of Jews from a child’s perspective. Based on the autobiographical novel by Joseph Joffo, the film tells the story of two brothers whose parents send them away from Vichy France to join their siblings in the free zone in Nice. The boys face possible capture and deportation along the way. Beautifully shot on location, the film appeals widely to children and adults alike. Featuring a top-notch French cast that includes Patrick Bruel and Elsa Zylberstein
