Movie night: ‘Le Silence de la Mer’
THOMASTON - Friday night, Jan. 6, at 6:30 p.m., Thomaston Public Library will host a free showing of Le Silence de la Mer, 1949, NR, 87 minutes.
During the Nazi occupation of France, a cultured, naively idealistic German officer is billeted in the home of a middle-aged man and his grown niece; their response to his presence - their only form of resistance - is complete silence. This is a powerful adaptation of an influential underground novel written during the Nazi occupation of France. A most unusual film. Worth seeing.
Friday night films are open to the public and free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. The Thomaston Academy Building is handicapped accessible from the rear entrance. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.
