Le dernier metro / The last metro

Μυθοπλασία/Fiction, Γαλλία/France 1980, 131’ Εγχρ./Color, Με ήχο/Sound

This multi-awarded film (10 Cesars and an Oscar nomination for best foreign film) was one of the most successful productions in Truffaut’s career. In contrast to the subversive formalism of his previous films, Truffaut made a classic narrative film, that is as personal as it is collective. It narrates the chronicle of a Parisian theater-troupe during the Nazi-occupation, 1942-1944. Truffaut didn’t make a film on an another art, as he didn’t make a film on cinema in Day for night, but a film on love, war and life.
