De Gaulle

De Gaulle (N/C 12+)

Dir Gabriel Le Bomi


May 1940. France is facing a disastrous military situation against the German army. Charles de Gaulle, newly appointed General, joins the Government in Paris while Yvonne, his wife, and their three children remain in the east. Faced with the defeatist attitude of Pétain who wants to negotiate with Hitler, de Gaulle has one intention only: to continue fighting. Alongside thousands of French families, Yvonne and the children are soon forced to flee the advancing German troops. Without contact with each another, the doubt arises: will the de Gaulle family be sacrificed for the sake of France?

“Mixing the historic and the romanesque the film charts a military debacle as well as the revelation of a destiny.”
