The Cinematheque at the Capitol Theatre
La Traversée De Paris Aka Four Bags Full
France, Italy | 1964 | Claude Autant-Lara
In this “explosively funny” (Pauline Kael) rediscovered comedy-thriller, a bold, garrulous, resourceful artist (Jean Gabin) and a nervous cab driver (Bourvil) try to transport four suitcases of black market pork across Paris during the German Occupation—dodging German patrols, French police, hungry dogs, roadblocks, collaborators, and air raids during a blackout. Voted the best film of 1956 by France's film critics, this hilarious movie was also one of the first French films to acknowledge the less than exemplary behavior of some of their countrymen during WWII.
