We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now here’s a small selection.
George S. Patton: Imagine fighting this war as a civilian. Imagine not knowing how to shoot a gun, challenging the Nazis to save lives. I have just heard an incredible story. It makes your sacrifices completely worth it.
Emma: One hundred and twenty-three children, their parents were just killed by Nazis.
Alain: We need to train them to survive.
Marcel: What good does it to do teach them fear? I think it’s important to help the children laugh in the middle of this war.
Emma: There’s a group in Leo arming themselves to fight back. We need to find guns, we need to learn how to shoot.
Marcel: Do you really think I could help anyone with a gun?
Alain: Of course not.
Emma: But your passports are impressive.
Marcel: Look at this. Marcel Marceau.
Emma: It’s a great name.
Resistance Member: Welcome to the Resistance.
Marcel: Why are we fighting a war we can’t win? We can’t kill all the Nazis.
Emma: We can kill some.
Marcel: Or we can save some lives.
Marcel: [to Emma] What’s the best way to resist? It’s not kill them. It’s to survive.
Marcel: We want to take them out of France, see if we can get across the border.
Klaus Barbie: Tell me where they are?
Emma: I don’t know where they are.
Klaus Barbie: You do know!
Georges: In every generation, they rise up against us. Sometimes, powerful men. Sometimes, an army tries to destroy the Jewish people. But here we are, together. You are not alone.
