FRA |1942 | dir. Jean Grémillon, with Madeleine Renaud, Pierre Brasseur, Madeleine Robinson, Paul Bernard

A shimmering glass hotel at the top of a remote Provençal mountain provides the setting for a tragi-comic tapestry about an obsessive love pentangle. Scripted by Jacques Prévert and Pierre Laroche, the film was banned from cinemas for the duration of the Occupation for its dark portrayal of the hedonistic excesses of the ruling class. Today, it is often singled out as Jean Grémillon’s greatest achievement.
