Gérard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve star as members of a French theater company living under the German occupation during World War II in François Truffaut's gripping, humanist character study. Against all odds-a Jewish theater 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.
