LA GUERRE EST FINIE, 1966, The Film Desk, 121 min, France, Dir: Alain Resnais.
LA GUERRE EST FINIE begins three decades after the Spanish Civil War and Franco’s fascist military coup, with Communist operative Yves Montand (Best Actor, National Society of Film Critics), juggling multiple identities as he continues his dangerous missions, while reflecting on a life of political struggle. Though increasingly disillusioned, his determination to help a possibly captured comrade and chance encounter with impetuous student terrorist Geneviève Bujold, keep his commitment to the cause alive. Rejected by Cannes so as not to offend Franco’s government, LA GUERRE EST FINIE went on to win France’s prestigious Prix Louis Delluc and the New York Film Critics Circle award for Best Foreign Language Film. Spanish novelist, screenwriter (Costa-Gavras’ Z, Resnais’ STAVISKY), and politician Jorge Semprún, himself an exile living in Spain and clandestine fighter for the Spanish Republic was Oscar-nominated for his autobiographical screenplay.
