World War I + 100
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 the First World War. This exciting and moving classic slyly demonstrates that it is social class—not nationality or language—that really separates and divides people. Essential viewing! Subtitles. DCP. 114 min.
