Set in Nazi occupied Paris during WWII, Catherine Deneuve plays the role of
Marion Steiner, the wife of a Jewish theatre owner who wants the Nazis to think that her
husband has fled France. He is, in fact, living in the cellar of the theatre.
Mrs. Steiner attempts to carry on a relationship with her husband while managing the
theatre herself. A very young Gerard Depardieu plays an actor who joins the acting
troupe and expresses his "underground" tendencies. He reminds us that it
is often the artistic temperament that can best find a voice to protest with.
The Last Metro was nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, as
well as for a Golden Globe (1981).

"very gripping and exciting film. i am
studying french cinema as part of my a-level studies and i think this is the
best Truffaut film."
"This is the best Truffaut film, although not as poignant as Jules and Jim it still manages to be as compelling
From: "Lawrence Durkin"
"A fantastic film set during the German occupation in France, a true classic in every way. Full of lively and realistic characters who come to life as if they were right next to you.
Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu are excellent, both very strong characters who are complete opposites yet they seem so perfect
"Catherine DENEUVE is the best","The Last Metro" is one of the best movies from Catherine
