Inside Vichy France 2

Vichyn Ranska 2. A programme of French Resistance films from AFF/CNC curated and presented by Eric Le Roy, interpreted into Finnish by Kaisa Kukkola, e-subtitles into Finnish by Lena Talvio, at Cinema Orion, Helsinki, 26 Oct 2010.

There was also "un cinéma de résistance" in France. I saw the first film:
Paroles d'honneur. FR 1940. 14 min. Resistance propaganda: Hitler as the greatest liar in history. Hitler promises peace, but also says: "La guerre, c'est moi". "Mon combat" is prominent. We follow Hitler's actions step by step: the rearmament, the remilitarization of Rheinland, the Anschluss of Austria, the annexation of the Sudetenland, the Munich agreement, the Molotov Ribbentrop pact, the attacks on Poland and Denmark.
