Alain Resnais – La Guerre est finie AKA The War Is Over [+Extras] (1966)


‘For some soldiers the war is never over…’
Legendary ‘New Wave’ director Alain Resnais helms this emotionally charged suspense-drama set in France and on the streets of fascist Spain starring Montand, Thulin and Bujold (her debut performance).
Diego (Yves Montand) is an aging revolutionary unwilling to accept that the fight for freedom should be passed to younger hands. While on the run from government agents and police, Diego begins to reflect on the meaning of his life of violent, idealistic struggles and whether it might be better to simply retire and live in peace with his long-suffering mistress (Ingrid Thulin). A chance encounter with a hot-headed student terrorist (Geneviéve Bujold) revives his militant passions, but catastrophe stalks Diego on his unswerving path to his last mission and a fateful choice.
