La Grande Illusion
France | 1937 | Jean Renoir
Orson Welles once said, “If I had only one film in the world to save, it would be Grand Illusion.“ Jean Gabin, Erich von Stroheim, and Pierre Fresnay star in Jean Renoir’s great anti-war movie—a humanistic masterpiece set in and around a German POW camp during WWI. This exciting and moving film astutely demonstrates that it is social class—not nationality or language—that separates and divides people. Unmissable! New 35mm print! Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles.
