New Trailer & Poster For Free Men
French Resistance drama action

20 April 2012  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Exclusive

The last time most of us saw Tahar Rahim, he was making unorthodox use of razor blades in A Prophet. Now he's back in Free Men, a story about the French Resistance that has a slightly different emphasis to the usual. And here are a new trailer and poster for the film.

The film sees Rahim as a young Frenchman of Algerian origin who survives in the early years of the German Occupation of Paris as a black marketeer. But his situation soon becomes more complicated: he's blackmailed by the Germans into spying on a Paris mosque and its leader (Michael Lonsdale) and becomes inspired to join the Resistance by the people he meets there. While this trailer is similar to others out there, there are a few new snippets included.

 

The film also stars Mahmud Shalaby and Lubna Azabal, and is directed by Ismaël Ferroukhi. Free Men is out on May 25.
