The conduct of the French intelligentsia under Nazi occupation remains a tender topic, and the 2002 release of Bertrand Tavernier's film about two filmmakers who follow divergent paths through the Vichy years stirred intense controversy. Pragmatic Jean Devaivre (Jacques Gambin) uses his position as an assistant director at a German-controlled production giant Continental as cover for his resistance activities; Jean Aurenche (Denis Podalydes), a screenwriter who lives by his wits, spurns the company's generous offers of employment. It was Continental that produced Clouzot's Le corbeau, later hailed by critics as an allegorical attack on fascism. To Tavernier both men are heroes after their own kind. In French with subtitles. 170 min.
