As a portrait of a time, Last Metro is a warmly performed and deftly shot trifle.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
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.
Beautiful, colorful late Truffaut -- extremely powerful.
Accomplished and beautifully-done.
| Original Score: 4/4
The Last Metro puts on vivid display Francois Truffaut's humanism and artistic craft.
