Nina's Home*

(France, 2005, 107 minutes French with English subtitles Director: Richard Dembo)

Agnès Jaoui captures the warmth and wisdom of the real-life Nina, director of a “house of hope” established by the French government for Jewish children who survived World War II in hiding. When new arrivals, boys who survived Nazi concentration camps, clash with the original residents, Nina is challenged to maintain harmony while the children cope with each other and the war’s aftermath.
