Overly elaborate Holocaust drama nevertheless benefits from the presence of Kristin Scott Thomas, as a contemporary journalist researching the infamous Vel dï'Hiv Roundup during WWII — when French authorities helped the occupying Germans herd Jewish citizens into a stadium on their way to the death camps. Two parallel story tracks here: the 1942 one, with ten-year-old Sarah (Mélusine Mayance) and her family suffering under the Nazis; and the 2009 one, in which Julia Jarmond (Scott Thomas) moves into Sarah's family's former apartment in Paris' Marais district and becomes haunted by the past. The effect is not unlike that of dozens of other films on the subject. Director Gilles Paquet-Brenner wrote the screenplay with Serge Joncour, adapted from a novel by Tatiana De Rosnay (111 min.)
