With humor and sympathy Tavernier tells the true story of two men who worked for the French film industry during the Nazi occupation. Assistant director Jean-Devaivre (Jacques Gamblin), secretly works for the Resistance while womanizing writer Jean Aurenche (Denis Podalydès) does what he can to avoid working for the Germans—and decades later wrote four of Tavernier’s early films.

A film by Bertrand Tavernier
