Ok. So next Saturday and Sunday evening is going to be aired the two parts telefilm “Alias Caracalla” on France 3. Alias Caralla is based on Daniel Cordier’s autobiography of the same name, Cordier being a Résistant and especially Moulin’s secretary.
Why watch it?
- For the Résistance. Because it’s full of politics and rivalry, compromise, and influence games, inside the Résistance itself, between the Résistance and the Free France, and between the Free France and the Allies. Because it is far more than its leaders. Because it’s morally grey. And because it is awesome - I mean, managing to do something in this mess? High five guys.
- For Moulin. Do you need a reason? (ok, I’m curious about the actor)
- For Cordier, obviously! Because he grows on you. Because you see him evolve and grow up. Because you discover a lot of things through his eyes. Because his relationship with Moulin is the most precious thing ever.
- For political reasons. Considering we’re at a time the far-right considers itself the gardian of the French civilisation by fighting against equality, watching the story of a resistant who happens to be gay and who learns to leave his far-right opinions away is like raising my middle fingers to them.
Why not watch it
- Let’s be honest, it’s a French telefilm.
- Because you’re going to cry at the end.
