Resistance is a 2020 biographical drama film written and directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz and inspired by the life of Marcel Marceau, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Clémence Poésy, Matthias Schweighöfer, Alicia von Rittberg, Félix Moati, Géza Röhrig, Karl Markovics, Vica Kerekes, Bella Ramsey, Ed Harris and Édgar Ramírez.
This biopic about the late, great Marcel Marceau (1923-2007) flashes back to the artist's early days as a French Resistance fighter during WW II. Did you know that this iconic French mime named Marcel Mangel before he became famous was once an unsung hero of the French Resistance, smuggling Jewish children across the border into Switzerland with the Nazis in pursuit?
