“The power of love is the only indestructible thing in the world. Hate is not going to get you anywhere, violence is not going to get you anywhere, cynicism is not going to get you anywhere, love will get you there. Love makes life worth living and that is it. Period,” Matthias Schoenaerts told RTE Ten. This is a sentiment that powers the upcoming “Suite Francaise,” and today a couple of clips from the wartime drama have landed.
Co-starring Michelle Williams, Kristin Scott Thomas, Margot Robbie. Ruth Wilson (“The Affair”), and Sam Riley, and based on the novel by Irene Nemirovsky, the story is set during World War II, in the early years of Germany’s occupation of France, and follows a French villager who falls for a Nazi soldier stationed to look over her township. But horrors of war aren’t hidden, and these clips (one via The Telegraph) show the small town villagers witness the violence of times firsthand.
“Suite Francaise” is now playing the U.K. No word yet on U.S. release plans.
