G Drama

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for The Grand Illusion at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

A Great Drama of Human Emotions

A group of French soldiers, including the patrician Captain de Boeldieu and the working-class Lieutenant Maréchal, grapple with their own class differences after being captured and held in a World War I German prison camp. When the men are transferred to a high-security fortress, they must concoct a plan to escape beneath the watchful eye of aristocratic German officer von Rauffenstein, who has formed an unexpected bond with de Boeldieu.

Considered a triumph of French cinema, Jean Renoir’s anti-war classic was the first foreign film ever to receive a Best Picture Oscar nomination. Regarded by critics and film historians as one of the masterpieces of French cinema and among the greatest films ever made, La Grande Illusion is a masterful and thought-provoking journey into wartime experience.
