Saumur: The Chronicle of an Occupied City

Fernando Gomez Monroy

2005 / 52min / Production : 24 Images - Move A Mountain Productions / Broadcasting : France 3 Ouest

How did the people of Saumur live the four years under the German occupation? What was their daily life like? What were their joys and their anguishes during the Occupation?

By distancing itself from labels of “good” and “bad” Frenchmen, this film depicts how men, women and children of Saumur simply continued to live. In spite of everything.
