It was difficult to believe that, bar 2 people, none of the actors were professional - in fact, they were from the Fife community, many of them descended from the mining families involved in the 1926 General Strike and subsequent lockout.The film is incredible! The script is so well written, and is even in the local Fife dialect ... don't worry, there are subtitles! The cinematography by Scott Ward is excellent; Scott unfortunately passed away soon after the film was completed, so this is his final work. Finally, the acting; it's so hard to heap enough praise onto the cast for the passion, the realism that they showed. Jokie Wallace, a star in his portrayal of Dan Guthrie, has rightly been nominated for a Scottish BAFTA.We laughed, we cried, we gasped in sheer disbelief at mans inhumanity to man. Ultimately, we left the cinema in no doubt that we had seen a film shot on a low budget, with amateur actors, that would put many of a Hollywood mega-bucks movie to shame. The most shocking thing is that this film doesn't yet have national exposure, it's still on a roadshow. A sales agent NEEDS to pick this film up - the world needs to see this dark slice of our nations history, so that nothing like this need happen again.

The La Rafle is a true story about few weeks in July 1942, when more than 13,000 Parisian Jews, including more than 4000 children, were rounded up and taken to the now notorious Vel' d'Hiv stadium. All the Jews families were kept in the stadium with no food, water or proper toilets. The movie is based upon the true story of the survivals during that time, which includes the young boy "Jo Weismann" and Christian nurse "Annette Monod". La Rafle succeed in presenting the situations at the Vel' d'Hiv stadium during that time. The story of young boy Jo and his neighbors are heart wrenching. I must say that the young star Romain Di Concerto as Nono is the cutest kid in the world. All of his scenes will simply brings tears into your eyes. There is no word to describe the innocence this character brings on screen. Melanie Laurent as Annette Mondo is great, she brings the charm into her character and shows how brilliantly she can be transformed into any character provided. Raphalle Agogu as Jo Weismann's mother is stunning. Hugo Leverdez, Jean Reno & Denis Menochet did a fine job.La Rafle depicted the situation in French during World War II perfectly but I do find the scenes showing Hitler or French govt. taking care of the matters inconsistent or you can incoherent with the movie. I think the movie would have been better without it.Overall, La Rafle is a very effective movie about the past human accuracy in the world.

Chris Z (fr) wrote: This is the most cynical movie by my favorite director, Todd Solondz. It would be easy to denounce this masterpiece as mean-spirited, but it is far too honest and veracious to call it meaningless. Out of all the movies I have seen, this one makes me think more than any other one. It makes me laugh, it makes me angry, but mostly it makes me nod my head. You watch these "terrible" people doing and saying "terrible" things, yet you don't judge them. You can't. Because they are too much like you. Todd Solondz really gets to the core of human nature, showing that what people often perceive as evil, is nothing more than than a typical human response to living in this world. Todd Solondz does not judge his characters, which already puts him far above most directors in my book. Please go watch this.

Jet Li and Chris Rock make for nice new additions to the ever growing cast, and this ends the series in a heartfelt and satisfying way.

James O (jp) wrote: Good leading performance with many of the familiar MLK tics caught quite well. No one can quite replicate the power of his actual speeches but this is a very reasonable attempt to portray him on film. The political background to his fight for voting rights and the Selma march are interesting but simplistic. Decent but you feel one day there'll be another MLK film that will trump this one.
