Two little boys against so many Nazis...
This is probably Doillon's finest hour (with the exception of "la drôlesse" ).Gone are his intellectual pretensions.Instead,the viewer rejoices in the presence of two very good little actors playing two very endearing children.It is all truly wonderful stuff and the story of these Jewish brats in an occupied France during WW2 is in turn funny ,moving and suspenseful.Their resourcefulness and their brotherly love will win over the audience .Outside the vicar,the adults are generally unkind people:many French people 's principal thought is to do a bit of business at the Jews' expense.But Joseph and Maurice have more than one trick up their sleeve.
