Captivating and inspiring

Orson Welles claimed this is one of 2 movies he would take with him on the Arc (aka Deserted Island challenge). I might just agree with him. This is the type of movie that other movies are basically ripped from. Prisoners of war tunneling to escape? Did it here first. Class issues within a military unit -- has it in spades. Folks fleeing the Germans and taking refuge in Switzerland? Check. The futility of war in terms of actually changing how our world works? Double check. And fun fact - director Jean Renoir is the son of famous French impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir. He lives up to his father's talents and stakes his own claim to artistic excellence.
