PHCL Film Show Presents
La Grande Illusion
Directed by Jean Renoir
Starring Jean Gabin, Pierre Fresnay and Erich von Stroheim
This First World War classic is set mostly in a German POW camp, where two very different French officers plot to escape: the working class officer Maréchal (Jean Gabin) and the upper class de Boieldieu (Pierre Fresnay).
"It is impeccably acted and directed and has real tragic force."
