GRANDE ILLUSION, LA – Special Edition | Out Now

Jean Renoir’s La Grande Illusion is a poetic and poignant meditation on class, the nature of war and the death of the old European order. An aristocrat, a mechanic and a wealthy Jewish banker are all thrown together, despite their vastly different backgrounds, as prisoners of the Germans in World War I. Separated by a successful escape, they are recaptured and reunited in an imposing fortress.
