San Sebastián: ‘Memoir of Pain’ Joins Main Competition

Produced by Les Films du Poisson (“The Tree,” “On Tour”), sold by TF1 Studio and starring Benoit Magimel and Melanie Thierry, “Memoir of Pain” is the fifth feature of multi-prized French director Emmanuel Finkiel. It adapts Marguerite Duras’ polemical semi-autobiographical World War II account – “The War: A Memoir,” inspired by her memories of how her life was shattered by the deportation of her husband, the fellow French Resistance fighter Robert Antelme, to Dachau.
