La Grande Illusion, Paperback / softback Book

La Grande Illusion Paperback / softback

Part of the BFI Film Classics series



Jean Renoir's 1937 film La Grande Illusion is set during the First World War, but its themes of Franco-German conflict, divided loyalties in a time of war and the rise of anti-Semitism made it compelling and controversial viewing.

Julian Jackson traces the film's historical context and its reception history.
