MARCOURT OU LA MEMOIRE SECRETE

Synopsis

The after effects on a village of the Ardennes of a dramatic episode of the end of WWII : the brutal execution of 9 hostages and the burning of the village as a reprisal for the attack of a German convoy by members of the Resistance in the region.

In Marcourt today, everyone is silent. There is no discussion between the children of the martyrs and those of the resisters. There has never been one. They observe each other without speaking a word. The conflict is concealed, as if deferred.

In Marcourt today, the wound of the memory are not yet healed. Resentment remains.
