Tribute to François Truffaut

The Last Metro

123 mins

in French with English subtitles

France | 1980 | col | dir. François Truffaut, with Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu

Truffaut’s stirring tribute to the Resistance and to the theatre, set in Paris in 1942, is Deneuve’s first pairing with Gérard Depardieu. Marion (Deneuve) takes over the theatre managed by her German- Jewish husband after he goes into hiding. She hires Bernard (Depardieu) as the star of her new production, and as rehearsals proceed, an attraction grows between them. A calm, powerful film about love, drama and the place of art in war, The Last Metro was winner in ten categories at the 1981 César Awards.
