Original title: Le voyage de Fanny
Based on a true story, 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.
“A handsome, compelling period piece, serving up a
tour-de-force performance by Cécile de France.”
“The perfect feel-good movie.”
