A chronicle of a French city under the occupation. Director Marcel Ophuls combined interviews and archival film footage to explore the reality of the French occupation in one small industrial city, Clermont-Ferrand. He spoke with resistance fighters, collaborators, spies, farmers, government officials, writers, artists and veterans. The result is a shattering portrait of how ordinary people actually conducted themselves under extraordinary circumstances. By turns gripping, horrifying, and inspiring, Academy Award nominee 'The Sorrow and the Pity' is a triumph of humanist filmmaking and a testament to the power of cinema. Before 'Shoah,' 'Schindler's List,' 'The Long Way Home' and 'The Last Days,' there was 'The Sorrow and the Pity.'
