A magnificent 1971 documentary by Marcel Ophuls (son of the great Max Ophuls) about France during the occupation and the strain put upon national and personal loyalties. The film—275 minutes long, including a 15-minute intermission—focuses on the town of Clermont-Ferrand, in the heart of Vichy France. Ophuls’s meticulous interviews with the survivors, both French and German, Vichy and Resistance, and his obvious sympathy for human weakness make the film a truly moving experience.
