The Eye of Vichy

L'oeil de Vichy

Directed by Claude Chabrol
France, 1993


In the words of this documentary, constructed almost exclusively from pro-Nazi newsreels created by the puppet government of authoritarian Marshal Petain, “This film shows France, not as it was between 1940 and 1944, but as Petain and the Collaborators wanted it to be seen.”

Critics reviews

Though the materials on view in The Eye of Vichy lack the enticement of Riefenstahl’s glamour, as a movie star or as an all-powerful, artful director, they’re fascinating simply because they tell us about the past. Whatever once qualified as sugarcoating comes across today as camp or simple deceit, and through all the lies we can readily discern the intricate rationalizations of a defeated country’s propagandists telling its citizens not to worry.
