I like this movie : la rafle

The director is Roselyne Bosch

The main actors are Mélanie Laurent, Jean Reno and Gad Elmaleh

Is a dramatic and historical movie, This film was released March 10, 2010 in France.
This film is inspired by the Vel d'Hiv round-up of 16 july 1942.
During the summer of 1942, France was under German occupation, Jews were required to wear the yellow star In the night of July 15 to 16, the Germans arrested the Jews who were then taken to the Velodrome d'Hiver where Joseph and Noah, the brother of his best friend, meet a nurse, Annette Monod, who did everything possible to help them and other Jewish children. In the Velodrome, the conditions were precarious and unsanitary. After two days, there were raids and they were deported to a transit camp at Beaune-la-Rolande, in the Loiret, where living conditions were unbearable: bad food and meager amounts, diseases, not to mention the psychological despair of the deportees. A few days later, parents and older children were deported to an extermination camp, Auschwitz, only the younger ones must remain in the hope that their return will not occur. These children were torn from their mothers' arms and Annette renewed her efforts despite the fatigue to care for them. Finally Joseph survived by his escape and that Noah escaped the train and then was collected by an elderly couple.

I love this movie because I can see a real past for Jews and these actors played well and the sets of the film are very well done.
