La Grande Illusion (1937)
Director Jean Renoir's masterful study of wartime honor and courage stars Jean Gabin, Pierre Fresnay, and Marcel Dalio as French officers in World War I who are captured by the Germans. After repeated escape attempts, they are sent to a medieval castle-turned-prison run by aristocratic commandant Erich von Stroheim. The bonds between captor and inmate form the basis for this compelling drama. 113 min.
