Grand Illusion is now more than 75 years old, but it has lost none of its lustre or its power as the ultimate anti-war film. Directed by Jean Renoir, the film is full of wonderful performances, thrilling escapes and moments of touching irony, with its themes of endurance, class and the folly of war still relevant today. Grand Illusion is an acknowledged masterpiece of French cinema, and thanks to a luminous restoration, it can be seen again in the cinema.
