It draws you in from the very beginning and holds your attention right to the end...the secret?? - good old-fashion story-telling. - Well worth watching.

Decades after the end of WWII, French Jewish director Diane Kurys came across photos and stories of estranged uncle that disappeared from France post WWII, perhaps after clandestine, mysterious anti-Nazi activities. This is another one of those original pieces of the puzzle about how some Jews worked actively to combat the spread of Nazism after the war. Perhaps the film tells the story of Jean, the uncle (or father?) of Kurys, or is a story of heroic Jews during this post WWII period. Whatever the reality, this film is on my list of top 10 or 20 films of the year. Note that in the end of the film Casablanca the heroic couple leaves on a plane, but the mode of transportation in For a Woman for one of the heros is a bus.
