— Pierre Brossolette: Moonlight Crossings, a film by Coline Serreau
© Gilles Scarella
TV movie – 90′
An extremely talented laureate of the very exclusive French graduate school Ecole Normale Supérieure, Pierre Brossolette was a young visionary journalist, driven by an inexhaustible desire to shape leading discourse and opinion. During the Occupation, this intellectual proved himself to be also a man of action and a master of clandestine warfare. Always unpredictable, he showed himself to be a capable, hyperactive leader, always rebellious, somewhat flamboyant, yet at the same time, pragmatic. He ended up being very instrumental in the unification of the Resistance.
A film which pays homage to courage and bravery, which gives recognition to an above-average destiny, tragically interrupted when Brossolette was only 40 years old. An in-depth look at France’s darkest years where we will cross paths with renowned and illustrious heroes of the Resistance (Churchill, General de Gaulle, Jean Moulin, Colonel Passy, Colonel Remy).
