The story is OK--French children joining the resistance against the Nazis in order to save a friend. But the images are pretty incredible. The main boy is constantly drawing in a sketchbook, and as they roll through the French countryside on a train, he captures everything he sees: Jews and others being packed into rail cars, a couple being forced out of their car at gunpoint, a man being shot right in front of him for being a spy. The way these scenes are drawn through his eyes is haunting.
