El Fin de la Noche (End of the Night) is a WWII rarity: An anti-Nazi film from neutral Argentina. Musical favorite Libertad Lamarque stars as a French nightclub singer who intends to escape her homeland when the Germans take over. She is aided in her flight by a wounded Resistance fighter, with whom she falls in love. The plot requires Lamarque to later become the "singing sweetheart" of the occupying German troops. In order to save her daughter from reprisals, she is forced to lure her Resistance-fighter sweetheart into a Nazi trap. Though it's clear who the villains are in El Fin de la Noche, no Swastikas are shown at any point in the film.
