Synopses
Eclipse Series 34: Jean Gremillon During the Occupation (Criterion) (Disc 1 of 3): Remorques (1941)

Though little known outside of France, Jean Grémillon was a consummate filmmaker from his countrys golden age. A classical violinist who turned to directing, he went on to make almost fifty filmsfrom documentaries to avant-garde works to melodramas with major starsin a thirty-year career. Three of his richest came during a dire period in French history: Remorques, starring Jean Gabin, was begun in 1939 but finished and released after Germany invaded France, and Lumière dété and Le ciel est à vous were produced during the occupation. These character-driven dramas, the first two cowritten by legendary screenwriter Jacques Prévert, are humane, entertaining, and technically brilliant, and prove Grémillon to be one of cinemas true hidden masters.
