Madame Rosa (1977) Simone Signoret
Auschwitz survivor and retired prostitute Madame Rosa (Simone Signoret) has become a caretaker for the children of other prostitutes. With her physical and mental health declining, Rosa begins returning her charges to their parents' care. However, she has grown attached to the only unclaimed child, Momo (Samy Ben Youb), a 14-year-old Arab boy whose parents disappeared years ago. Still tormented by memories of the Holocaust, Rosa becomes increasingly convinced the Gestapo is coming for her.
Starring: Simone Signoret
Viewer Quote: "This 'Oscar Winning' film gem is a masterpiece! It's a shame that it doesn't have a wider audience here in the US. Simone Signoret gives perhaps the finest performance of a distinguished career, unafraid to let the ravages of time and hard living show. This touching film celebrates the beauty of the human spirit, and anyone who loves exceptional film will be happy they gave this one their time."
