beATL goes to the movie – Fanny’s Journey | 2/5/2017


A French-Belgian co-production largely shot in Belgium. With Belgian actor Stéphane DE GROODT as Jean, who said about his role in the movie: ‘This is the first time I’ve done a period film and the more I continue in this business, the more I want to erase our friend Stéphane de Groodt, who I know well, in favor of characters who are damaged, tortured, hidden and complex.‘ Bruno MULLENAERTS is police chief… and we have a brochette of Belgian kids: Igor VAN DESSEL student at Lycee Martin V in Louvain-La-Neuve as Maurice, Lou LAMBRECHT as Rachel and Fantine HARDUIN, as Erika, from Mouscron…
 
About the Film – Based on Fanny Ben-Ami’s autobiographical novel, Fanny’s Journey is an incredible tale of bravery, strength and survival, a story of a daring young girl who will stop at nothing and fear no one. In 1943, 13-year old Fanny and her younger sisters were sent from their home in France to an Italian foster home for Jewish children. When the Nazis arrive in Italy, their caretakers desperately organize the departure of the children to Switzerland. When they are suddenly left on their own, these 11 children do the impossible and reach the Swiss border to freedom.
