One of the first French films to address the issue of collaboration during the German occupation of World War II, Lacombe, Lucien (France, 1974) traces a young peasant’s journey from potential Resistance member to Gestapo recruit. At once the story of a nation and one troubled boy, the film is a disquieting portrait of lost innocence and guilt. Lacombe, Lucien depicts life under fascism and antisemitism.

Content warning: This is an R-rated film about war, fascism, and antisemitism. There are depictions of violence and trauma.
