November film: The Grand Illusion (1937)
Two French soldiers–blue-collar Maréchal (Jean Gabin) and genteel de Boeldieu (Pierre Fresnay)–strive to overcome their differences while plotting their escape from a German prison camp during World War I. Meanwhile, de Boeldieu finds a kindred spirit among his captors in a patrician German officer (Erich von Stroheim). Jean Renoir directs this genre classic, considered one of the greatest antiwar movies ever made.
