Resistance, directed by Todd Komarnicki, is a 2003 drama set in Nazi occupied Belgium at the height of World War II. The movie is based on a novel by Anita Shreve. Maj. Theodore 'Ted' Brice (Bill Paxton), an American reconnaissance pilot, manages to survive a plane crash when he is shot down during a mission. A young boy named Jean Benoit (Antoine Van Lierde) finds him, and local underground members hide him at the house of resistance fighter leader Henri Daussois (Philippe Volter) where nurses help him recover. Once Ted's wounds have healed, he explains to the members that he needs to retrieve a book of codes from the debris of his airplane which is being protected by three German guards. Meanwhile, Ted meets Henri's wife, Claire Daussois (Julia Ormond), and the two fall in love. When Henri finds out about the affair, he betrays Ted with an act that threatens the entire resistance movement.
