About the Book

An epic movie from the creator of Orlando and The Tango Lesson, The Man Who Cried is a young woman's coming-of-age story set in the dangerous maelstrom of the Nazi Occupation of Paris. The film charts a journey which begins in the lost world of old Jewry and ends in the new world of Hollywood, a journey in which the young woman's original language is taken from her, causing her to retreat into silence - and song. The film attempts to mourn for those lost in the terrible events of the last century - and to celebrate those who found their voices and survived.
