Memoir Of War (La Douleur) will represent France in the best foreign language category at the 91st Academy Awards next year, the country’s National Cinema Centre (CNC) announced on Friday (September 21).

Emmanuel Finkiel’s drama stars Mélanie Thierry and is inspired by French writer Marguerite Duras’ account of her husband Antelme’s return from the Dachau concentration camp after the Second World War.

Prior to Antelme’s arrest in 1944, Duras had embarked on an affair with Dionys Mascolo, however she continued living with her husband until he recovered his health. Antelme wrote the book The Human Race about his experiences in Germany.

Memoir Of War premiered at San Sebastian Film Festival in 2017 under the title La Douleur / Memoir Of Pain where Thierry won critical acclaim for her performance as Duras. TF1 Studio handled international sales and Music Box distributed in the US earlier this year as Memoir Of War.
