Film Description

The winner of a phenomenal 10 Césars at the 1981 French Academy awards, this is one of Truffaut's most highly acclaimed films. It is set in wartime Paris during Nazi occupation. A Jewish theatre manager is in hiding, and his wife (Deneuve), has taken over the running of the troupe, staging a new play with womanising actor Bernard Granger (Depardieu) as the lead. As the actors begin rehearsals, an anti-semitic journalist instills fear and insecurity in the theatre. A thrilling story of love that captures the detail of the period.
