Follows along the lines of the director's The Grand Illusion, but without that film's depth.

The tone is light and the repeated escape attempts are played with a comic undertone, yet behind the humor is the feeling of dignity lost...
May 10, 2005
Tthe trace of philosophical implication makes it worth more than lightly passing through.

January 1, 2000
An ironic comedy of fake French heroics and real French heroism, the film is delicate and witty and features a delightful performance from Jean-Pierre Cassel.

This is a slight and sentimental tale from Renoir, for the most part played for laughs, but it is informed with a trademark humanism that is evident in his greatest work.

January 26, 2006
This late addition to Renoir's impressively wide-ranging oeuvre is nevertheless suffused with the same warm and generous humanism as the great Règle du Jeu or Grande Illusion.
August 30, 2006
Renoir draws a connection both to his past as a filmmaker and to Paris' past, emphasizing the senseless repetition of war and the timeless universality of man's fight for liberty.
