You might want to think twice the next time you offer to help a little old lady cross the street.

Not only might she not need the assistance, but she may actually be tougher than you.  She might even have been a spy working for the French Resistance during World War II.

That’s the case with the central figure in Nicola Alice Hens’ “Chichinette: The Accidental Spy.”  Marthe Cohn, 96 years old at the time of filming, travels the globe recounting the wartime experiences she hadn’t discussed publicly until the release of her 2002 book “Behind Enemy Lines: The True Story of a French Jewish Spy in Nazi Germany.”

Cohn’s fascinating story proves once again that truth can sometimes be more compelling than even the most carefully plotted fiction.

“Chichinette: The Accidental Spy” begins playing in select cities on December 25.
