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

Truffaut’s stirring tribute to the Resistance and to theatre, set in Paris in 1942, is Deneuve’s first pairing with Gérard Depardieu. Marion 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, it was the winner in ten categories at the 1981 César Awards.
