In the 50's, Marie-Therese Thibeau (Jennifer Jason Leigh) is the 20 year old leading lady in an amateur radio band called the Orfèche Revue. In 1972, she and her mother (Catherine Deneuve) travel to West Berlin, where she is allowed to join the German youth radio station. Marie-Therese is soon befriended by Robert de Nazir (Ethan Hawke), the radio personality behind the band. She later joins the radio station's director, Walter van Vechten (Ralph Fiennes), as well as being the voice of the band. Marie-Therese's passion for radio as a medium is expressed in her essays, in which she openly discusses her creative process. Although not always approved by the show's management, Marie-Therese proves to be very loyal to the director. After being rejected from the band, Marie-Therese reluctantly decides to quit, as she realizes the only way she can bring her family back to Germany is to go solo. Directed by Julie Delpy, a Canadian filmmaker, this documentary gives insight into one of the most influential moments in French history. Marie-Therese Thibeau was the leading female voice in the Communist Party's youth radio station during the 70's. As a young woman, she joined the band at the age of 19, which required her to be a member for at least 6 months. As the band's manager, Marie-Therese was required to hand out a program every night of the week and to attend every meeting, despite the restrictions of the group's president, Walter van Vechten (Ralph Fiennes). "In the 50's, France was a Soviet satellite. It was the last country in Europe where you had to be in a union to form a union" said Delpy, who was born and raised in the Parisian suburbs. "It was so far from the civil rights of the middle class. It was the end of the end of the Party". "I felt that radio was an expression of the Left's political thinking", she said. "I was a kid, I saw how radio was a powerful thing. I had no idea that it could be used for communist propaganda. I just didn't understand that." Delpy believes that radio has become the centre of the Communist Party's youth movement and the more they have won, the more they have focused on radio. "Radio was the closest thing to the Party" she said. "It was a place where youth went to express their discontent. It was also a symbol of the Party's power, the ability to control youth". The film is an insight into the social attitudes of France in the early 70's. We see Marie-Therese and the radio crew, in various interviews, talk about the radio station, how radio was a powerful symbol of the revolutionary youth. We see how radio has become a media platform, where the voices of the youth are decided for us. The film is a great visual treat and well made, but the film does not tell the story it should, that is to say, it doesn't give you the real story of what it means to be a radio station leader. The documentary gets

The documentary tells the story of how French children are treated in a prison and how they manage to find another way of life. It shows the struggle of these children as well as the guards and some of the guards sympathize with the prisoners, but some of them don't. The prisoners receive education, they get respect from the guards, and they make their own decisions in many ways. It shows how children are taught how to adapt to the prison system, and how they manage to find a way to survive in the prison. The guards look on this documentary as a painful thing, but the prisoners see it as an opportunity to live a better life. The guards become more concerned with their own children, but the prisoners don't see it as a problem, but as an opportunity. The documentary has been a good starting point for people to get an understanding of how the prison system works in France. It shows a lot of the things that go on behind the scenes, and how the children are treated, and how the prisoners are treated. It doesn't give a clear picture of what's going on, but it does show a lot of different views on the prison system. It shows that a lot of different views about prison are out there, and it shows that sometimes people find the prison system less than what they expected. It does give the viewer an idea of what goes on behind the scenes, and it gives a good perspective on how a society is handled. This documentary can also be watched as a way to learn more about the prisoners, and how it works in prisons. If you're looking for a film about the French prison system, I'd recommend this documentary.
