Lacombe Lucien (Criterion Collection) back to product details

I watched this movie when it was released and I was not yet twenty. It disappeared for a long time after that. I kept trying to find a copy, because I never could get it out of my mind. To my astonishment, when I watched it again after my 50th birthday it was exactly as I remembered it, and every bit as shattering. Lucien is a stolid, rather dim French Everyman with a moral sense so brutal and stunted as almost to be absent -- but not quite -- you can't just dismiss him. It's never clear how much he really understands of what's going on around him, though he nearly always understands just enough to shock us with his choices. In contrast, the Jewish tailor and his enchanting daughter that Lucien befriends and exploits are vibrantly intelligent and subtle.
