Is Paris Burning? Photos

Movie Info

Near the end of World War II, Gen. Dietrich von Choltitz (Jean-Paul Belmondo) receives orders to burn down Paris if it becomes clear the Allies are going to invade, or if he cannot maintain control of the city. After much contemplation Choltitz decides to ignore his orders, enraging the Germans and giving hope to various resistance factions that the city will be liberated. Choltitz, along with Swedish diplomat Raoul Nordling (Leslie Caron), helps a resistance leader (Alain Delon) organize his forces.

Audience Reviews for Is Paris Burning?

  • Sep 08, 2006
    Not bad looking. With a superb script by Gore Vidal and Francis Ford Coppula and directed by Rene Clement. Filmed in Panavision(was Oscar nominated for its stunning black and white cimematopgraphy),this film boasts an all star cast which features Charles Boyer,Leslie Caron,Glenn Ford,Henry Fonda,Robert Stack and a execptional performance by Kirk Douglas as General Patton. Be forewarned here since this picture runs over three hours long.
