Yesterday I watched Suite Française and it was just so good. The movie sets place during the second world war, in a little village close to Paris. The Germans arrive and they are temporarily staying with the actual residents of the town. An officer is staying at Lucille’s home. She’s living in a big maison together with the maid and her mother-in-law. Her husband is a prisoner of war in Germany. You will see what the war means for the people in this town and how people deal with it.
I just want to say that this movie was so good! The acting, the story, the music: everything fitted together perfectly. It was so touching, realistic, yet so beautiful. The movie shows that there are bad people among the so-called good people, and visa-versa: Good people among the so-called bad people.
If want to know what it was like to live in a time like this and watch all the drama and emotional experiences, you will love this movie as much as I did! Suite Française definitely belongs to one of the better films I have seen recently. The piano music is also just stunning, and makes this movie even better. In the trailer from 1:21 on; pure perfection.
