In 1942 Casablanca during WWII, Max Vatan (Brad Pitt), a French-Canadian intelligence officer, meets French Resistance fighter Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard), on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.
They fall in love while working together on a mission to kill a German official, and afterwards Max convinces Marianne to come with him to London to marry him. She does and the happy couple soon have a child together. However, their relationship is threatened by the pressures of war, especially when Max is told that Marianne may be a Nazi spy. He's given 72 hours to find out the truth, and if the suspicions are true, he's ordered to execute her or be hanged himself.
Steve Starkey, Graham King, Robert Zemeckis
"The movie was a love story about two spies during WWII. As it turns out, one is a legitimate spy and one is not. Anyway, Brad Pitt and Marion C. are both great actors and they are great in this film. It has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Costume Design. Good story line and authentic in its WWII history props. Keeps you guessing until the end who is really the spy. I would recommend this film."
"Totally entertaining, kept you guessing. Definitely worth seeing"
"Well made. Worth seeing especially for fans of the 'Casablanca" type films of back in the day. Actress Marion Cotillard steals the show as an updated version of Marlene Dietrich. Brad Pitt generously lets her steal it in an underplayed costar role. Slow first half of the movie builds nicely with more and more intrigue until the final showdown at (guess where ?) yes the airport.
Question: why do antique cars used in period films always appear immaculate....even in a dusty desert. Go figure."
