A great classic

It has been a while since I saw this flick but since it is such a classic, I was really eager to re-watch it. Honestly, it didn't expect to be blown away like this. I mean, I enjoyed it back then but I didn't remember that it was that good. This is indeed a true masterpiece directed by Jean Renoir and I thought it was just brilliant and worked on so many levels. Indeed, not only it is a great war ... read more

"15.1. La Grande Illusion on usein esillä parhaiden sotaa käsittelevien elokuvien listauksissa ja kukapa minä olen tätä näkemystä kyseenalaistamaan - ehdottoman hieno leffa on kyseessä. Sotaelokuvaksi tässä nähdään ilahduttavan vähän pyssysankarointia ja patrioottista nostatusta, keskipisteeseen nousee vastakkaisia puolia edustavien miesten ystävyys mahdottomissa olosuhteissa. Elokuvan pasifistinen pohjavire lienee aikakaudelle melko poikkeuksellista. Mitään elämää suurempaa"
