Political and romantic intrigues run parallel and then intersect in Truffaut's critically acclaimed and commercially popular Oscar-nominated WWII saga, starring Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu.

Truffaut balances his hopeful plot on a tightrope of coincidences and narrow escapes that horrifically suggest the abyss that engulfed so many men and women of the artistic and political underground. In French.

although not one of Truffaut's strongest works, it is nevertheless a striking and engaging film, one that reflects the great filmmaker's love of artistic creation and its role in maintaining humanity

The muted colors give the film a haunted look, like it was a film made in the 1940s.

With few of the director's idiosyncrasies, this is not one of Truffaut's more groundbreaking films.
