Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
As the Germans marched into Poland, some Poles sought to join the resistance underground to harass or even stop the advance. Some members of the Jewish community joined them. A surprising number, more mystically inclined, did not. This French film takes us to one remote Polish estate, where patriots are arming themselves to fight Germans. Several Jews who sought to join them are admitted by the group's leader, but they are violently dealt with by the other anti-Semitic members of the group. Une Larme dans l'Ocean was presented at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival and was named the best film of 1973 by the French Academy of Motion Pictures.
