The Sorrow and the Pity

The Sorrow and the Pity

From 1940 to 1944, France’s Vichy government collaborated with Nazi Germany. Marcel Ophüls mixes archival footage with 1969 interviews of a German officer and of collaborators and resistance fighters from Clermont-Ferrand. They comment on the nature, details and reasons for the collaboration, from anti-Semitism, xenophobia, and fear of Bolsheviks, to simple caution. Part one, “The Collapse,” includes an extended interview with Pierre Mendès-France, jailed for anti-Vichy action and later France’s Prime Minister. At the heart of part two, “The Choice,” is an interview with Christian de la Mazière, one of 7,000 French youth to fight on the eastern front wearing German uniforms.

The Sorrow and the Pity - review by 123movies

I didn`t even notice how quickly 251 minutes flew by while watching the action-packed movie The Sorrow and the Pity 123movies, which is now one of my favorites in its genre.

All films in the genre Best Documentaries, Documentary, History, War I like in my own way, but this film (that i watched on 123movies) has become for me the standard of its direction, there is not a single failed scene in it.

1969 - the year of the film`s release coincided with the release of other high-profile film premieres, but it was this film (i watched on 123movies site) that really became a landmark, the excellent work of the director played a role.

The famous and talented knows exactly what his loyal audience wants to see, so the film (that i watched on 123movies) turned out as good as the previous works.

Few actors would have been able to realize such a brilliant idea of the director, but Georges Bidault, Maurice Chevalier proved that they are real professionals in their field.
