For its 75th anniversary, one of the legends of the cinema, GRAND ILLUSION now looks and sounds better than ever thanks to all-new restoration! Film Forum will be showing the restoration in 35mm, with newly-revised subtitles by Lenny Borger capturing the wit of the Renoir-Charles Spaak screenplay like never before.
During the First World War, two French soldiers are captured and imprisoned in a German POW camp. Several escape attempts follow until they are sent to a seemingly impenetrable fortress which seems impossible to escape from.
at Film Forum until May 24
