  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Elusive Corporal

    Les cinq tentatives d'évasion d'un caporal français prisonnier dans un stalag en Allemagne vers 1940 ..... UN CLASSIQUE ! www.cinefiches.com

  2. Graham Duncan Hill's rating of the film The Elusive Corporal

    A serious film with a lot of humor about POW's. Kept my attention.

  3. Black Irish's rating of the film The Elusive Corporal

    The closest Renoir ever came to a direct remake. Though to write it off so is to not only misunderstand the film, but his development between '37 and '62. Where the former encapsulates a bittersweet hope for fraternite among all men on the verge of a catastrophe, the latter swings wildly from burlesque humor to tragic resignation in a struggle for personal freedom in it's aftermath.

  4. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film The Elusive Corporal

    This is a decent piece late in Renoir's career in the same vein as prior works such as Grand Illusion and This Land is Mine, and he gives it sort of a neorealist feel like that of Rossellini without losing his own touch of course.
