Un monde presque paisible

A film by Michel Deville

2002 France - Drama

synopsis

August 1946. A ladies' garment workshop in the Jewish tailors' district of Paris. In the workshop amidst sewing machines, cutting and finishing tables, and bolts of cloth  and in the street in a café, a hotel room or an apartment that suddenly seems too large - four women, five men and their children learn to live again. Devastated but determined, hardened but joyful, they opt for life. Ordinary people; extraordinary people. Almost peaceful is about hope.
