From page A11 | October 15, 2013 |

“Sarah’s Key,” a 2010 French film directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner, will be screened Friday as part of the International Film Series.
The series is co-sponsored by the United Nations Association of Davis and International House. Doors at I-House, 10 College Park, open at 7:30 p.m. and the film begins promptly at 8 p.m.
There is no charge, but donations are accepted with gratitude to help cover the cost of DVD rental, facilities use and refreshments.
Adapted from Tatiana de Rosnay’s novel with the same title, this French drama cuts back and forth between Holocaust-related events that happened in German-occupied Paris in 1942 and the present-day investigation surrounding those events by an American journalist, Julia Jarmond (Kristin Scott Thomas), whose husband Bertrand Tezac (Frédéric Pierrot) is French.
In 1942, 10-year-old Sarah Starzynski (Mélusine Mayance) hides her younger brother from authorities carrying out the notorious Vel’ d’Hiv roundup, locking him in a closet and telling him to stay until she returns. The key of the title stays with her when she and her parents are transported to the Vélodrome d’Hiver where they are held in inhuman conditions by the Paris police and French Secret Service until transfer to an internment camp. The adults are deported to Auschwitz.
Sarah escapes from the camp, desperate to save her brother. She ends up being raised by farmers, the Dufaures (Niels Arestrup and Dominique Frot), and eventually moves to the United States. Jarmond discovers a shocking coincidence that involves her in-laws and becomes obsessed with finding out what ultimately became of Sarah.
