Not me until last Friday night when I watched on Amazon Prime the movie "Resistance,"
Apparently the hairpin escapes and heart-thumping rescues in the movie were mostly made up,
... and there was actually no romance between Marcel and a fellow French Resistance fighter (played by Clémence Poésy).
Juxtaposed in the film with Marcel Marceau was Klaus Barbie,
The story of of Klaus Barbie's reign of terror in Lyons as told in the movie was accurate. The story of Marcel Marceau as a rescuer of children (in real life of men and women as well) was also true. What was not true in the movie was that the two carried out their missions of good and evil in the same locale.
"Resistance," however, took both their stories, Marcel Marceau's and Klaus Barbie's, and interwove them into an engaging and thought-provoking fable of good vs. evil and a film well worth watching.
In real life, as it turned out, the story took an incredible turn beyond what was told in the movie.
