Synopsis

Gérard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve star as members of a French theatre company living under the German occupation during World War II in François Truffaut's gripping, humanist character study. Against all odds—a Jewish theatre manager in hiding; a leading man who's in the Resistance; increasingly restrictive Nazi oversight—the troupe believes the show must go on. Equal parts romance, historical tragedy, and even comedy, The Last Metro (Le dernier métro) is Truffaut's ultimate tribute to art overcoming adversity.
