“Le Trou denounces injustice and celebrates solidarity, leaving you to ponder what happens when those values collide” (J. Hoberman, New York Times). Becker’s last film, Le trou is one of the great prison escape films, and a profound meditation on freedom and confinement that “exists in the same spiritual screen realm as Renoir’s Grand Illusion and Bresson’s A Man Escaped” (Telluride Film Festival).
