Suite Francaise

Suite Francaise is about finding love during wartime. Nothing is simple when there is conflict and two people who might have met under different and better circumstances find themselves drawn together through their common love of music. Michelle Williams is very good here as is Mattias Schoenaerts who plays the stoic composer and German officer caught in a web of duty to his country in a cause he doesn't really believe in.

Casablanca it is not and yet there is a similar tonality here where you are afraid that melancholy might just win out over a happy ending which I guess you will have to see for yourselves.
