Directed by Ismael Ferroukhi and set in Nazi-occupied Paris, Free Men is about a young Algerian immigrant/criminal, Younes (Tahar Rahim), who is drawn into the war by the forces of history. The film begins with Younes selling black-market goods to illegal immigrants. Younes is caught by the police and forced to spy on a Mosque that is suspected of producing fake papers for Jews. Younes, who is not religious or doesn't care much for the old traditions of his old culture, discovers this is indeed the case, the Mosque is harboring and protecting Jews. The big question: Will he report on the Mosque or not? Is he a hero or a scumbag? (Younes is, in other words, Han Solo). Free Men’s cinematography effortlessly pleases the eyes, Tahar Rahim is a very handsome man, and the pace of the story is strangely calm. There is very little tension in this movie about one of the tensest moments in French history.
