Chichinette: The Accidental Spy
Dir. Nicola Hens | 86 min
EnglishFrench with English subtitles
It is only now, at the age of 98, that French-Jewish Marthe Cohn can talk freely about her experience as a spy during the war.
Known at the time as Chichinette, she was recruited as a young woman by the French army and sent to gather intelligence from inside Germany. At all of four and a half feet tall, Cohn – then as today – may not look like much of a threat, but her incredible bravery and resourcefulness contributed to the Nazis’ eventual defeat. The Accidental Spy is as dynamic as the woman whose extraordinary story it tells. Her harrowing journey is told with reverence, while her joie de vivre shines through, filling the film with hope for the future.
