The Round Up

A drama recounts the French government's complicity with the Nazi

In the summer of 1942, the French government cooperated with the Nazis by rounding up more than 10,000 Parisian Jews. Roselyne Bosch's drama features an ensemble cast that includes a neighborhood of Jewish families, sympathetic Parisians (including Jean Reno as a doctor), Vichy officials and Hitler. While her attempt to show the full picture is admirable, the scope detracts somewhat from our emotional engagement.
