Round Up, The (La Rafle)

[cert 12A, 125 mins]

La Rafle, directed by Rose Bosch starring Jean Reno, Mélanie Laurent and Gad Elmaleh, is a film based on true events retelling the story of the 1942 'Velodrome d'Hiver round up' which saw the mass arrest of 13,000 Jews in occupied Paris by the French Police before they were deported to concentration camps in Eastern Europe. These historical events are seen through the eyes of two real people: twelve-year-old Jewish boy Joseph Weismann and Protestant nurse Annette Monod.
