Resistance (Jonathan Jakubowicz, 2019). Turns out Marcel Marceau was involved in the French resistance, sabotaging Nazi occupiers in Vichy and leading Jewish children to safety in Switzerland. So just think about that the next time you make fun of the world’s greatest mime. This film is broad and heavy-handed, but Jesse Eisenberg attempts to get something going in the central role, and it also has Clémence Poésy and Géza Röhrig (the guy from Son of Saul).
