La Grande Illusion
I’ve recently reviewed the classic anti-war film La Grande Illusion for FlickFeast:
Jean Renoir’s La Grande Illusion was first released in 1937 as storm clouds were once again gathering over Europe. Rightly considered to be a cinematic masterpiece, La Grande Illusion is a powerful and provoking look at the senselessness of war. The title itself comes from a book called The Great Illusion by British Economist Norman Angell who argued that war is in itself a futile practice because of the common economic interests of the European nations. The destructive and costly nature of wars serves no useful purpose and its benefits are merely an illusion.
