A Nous La Liberte

Product Information
One of the all time classic French films. Made in 1931, this is one of the first French talkies. Pre-dating Chaplin’s Modern Times by five years (and the subject of a bitter court case stopped when Rene Clair stated that imitation is the finest from of flattery) and leading the way in a satirical attack on the machine age, Rene Clair created a wicked comedy on the dehumanization of industrial workers. When Louis (Raymond Cordy) and Emile (Henri Marchand), two prison inmates, attempt to escape, Louis is caught and returned to his cell, while Emile succeeds and becomes a successful businessman. On Louis’ release he goes to work for Emile but finds the industrial world no better than the prison regime. When Emile is recognized as an escaped convict, he and Louis decide to escape the confines of the factory by taking to the road as tramps.
