“Free Men”

 

 2011 thriller French, Eng subtitles, 99 mins 

This gripping fact-based thriller recounts the largely untold role of Algerian and other North African Muslims in Paris who rescued Jews and resistance fighters during the Nazi occupation by hiding them in  cellars of the city’s principal mosque, while at ground level the Nazi occupiers, attracted to Islamic art, were frequent visitors to the mosque. Two historic figures depicted in the film are the rector of the Grand Mosque of Paris, and an Algerian Jewish singer. The fictional side of the film revolves around  an Algerian Muslim captured by the Nazis for black marketeering.
