      EVENT DETAILS
      GRAND ILLUSION

      One of the very first prison escape movies, Grand Illusion is hailed as one of the greatest films ever made. Jean Renoir's antiwar masterpiece stars Jean Gabin and Pierre Fresnay as French soldiers held in a World War I German prison camp, and Erich von Stroheim as the unforgettable Captain von Rauffenstein. Its an exhilarating P.O.W. movie the ur-text of all P.O.W. movies, influencing every one that followed it. Its also a potent expression of the political-humanist ferment of the nineteen thirties. GRAND ILLUSION is about the First World War, but it was filmed at the time of the Spanish Civil War, and that eras soaring leftist idealism suffuses its textures and storytelling.


      Cost: 12.50
