In the spring of 1940, Germany defeated the French and British armies, signed an armistice with France, and occupied the country. The Occupation, as it came to be called, lasted until Liberation in 1944/45. Last fall, Jesse Frey ran a fascinating class for us on that period in French and world history. At least five superb films have been made about the Occupation, several of which were mentioned in Jesse’s class. In this study group we will screen and discuss the five films. The course serves two different interests – those who are interested in great films, and those who are interested in the history of the period.
The five films, in order of their production are: Casablanca (1943), Army of Shadows (1969), The Sorrow and the Pity (1971), Lacombe, Lucien (1973), Au Revoir, les Enfants (1987). Casablanca is Hollywood at its best. The other films are in French with English subtitles.
