New Digital Restoration!
France | 1952 | René Clément
Here’s a new digital restoration of one of the most shattering pacifist films ever made! Set in WWII France, the movie tells of a five-year-old French orphan girl and an 11-year-old peasant boy who together engage in private, war-inspired play involving the burial of dead animals and the theft of crosses from a local churchyard. “Perhaps the greatest war film since La Grande Illusion.” –Pauline Kael. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 86 min.
