  The Last Metro on Blu-ray [read more]
  Fully occupied
  François Truffaut's late-career drama THE LAST METRO (1980) features mesmerising performances from two icons of French cinema, Catherine Deneuve (Belle de jour) and Gérard Depardieu (Cyrano de Bergerac), in a powerful character study set in German-occupied Paris. A multi-award-winning masterpiece, it is presented on Blu-ray in a new 2K restoration along with release on iTunes and Amazon Prime on 30 May, and follows the BFI's recent Blu-ray releases of Truffaut's THE 400 BLOWS (1959) and JULES ET JIM (1962).

THE LAST METRO explores the fortunes of the Montmartre Theatre as its owner, Marion Steiner (Deneuve) battles censorship and compromise while hiding her Jewish husband from Nazi persecution. When a new leading man, Bernard Granger (Depardieu), is hired, she is irresistibly drawn to him - even though he may not be all he seems.
