Memoir of War

Willard Straight Theatre
Monday, Oct 21, 2019 at 7:00 PM (ET)

In Emmanuel Finkiel’s haunting adaptation of Marguerite Duras’s semi-
autobiographical novel, The War: A Memoir, the famed author (Mélanie
Thierry) recounts an emotionally complex story of love, loss, and
perseverance against a backdrop of wartime intrigue. It’s 1944
Nazi-occupied France, and Marguerite is an active Resistance member
along with husband Robert Antelme and a band of fellow subversives. When
Antelme is deported to Dachau by the Gestapo, she becomes friendly with
French Nazi collaborator Rabier (Benoît Magimel) to learn of her
husband’s whereabouts. But as the months wear on with no news of her
husband, Marguerite must begin the process of confronting the
unimaginable. Using subtly expressionistic imagery and voiceover
passages of Duras’s writing, Finkiel evokes the inner world of one of
the 20th century’s most revolutionary writers.
