Valiant Hearts tells the true story of exceptional bravery and survival against all odds. Starring acclaimed French actress Camille Cottin (Call My Agent, House of Gucci, Stillwater), the story recounts the odyssey of six Jewish children in August 1942 who are forced to take refuge where no one will ever think to look for them: amidst the Louvre Museum artworks hidden in the Château de Chambord. Between fear, outbursts of laughter, and unexpected encounters, the children learn about independence and discover solidarity and friendship in the midst of tumultuous circumstances. The character played by Camille Cottin was inspired by Rose Valand, a conservator at Paris’s Jeu de Paume Museum and a member of the resistance who, for the full duration of the war, spied and documented artwork thefts carried out by Nazi officers. Astounding in its adventure and sharing an incredible story of friendship, bravery, and doing what’s right. Valiant Hearts is compelling and exquisitely shot.
