"A fantastic mixture of realism and romanticism." -Variety
One of the all-time great comedy classics, Rene Clair's A Nous La Liberte is a skillful satire of the industrial revolution and the blind quest for wealth. Deftly integrating his signature musical-comedy technique with pointed social criticism, Clair tells the story of an escaped convict who becomes a wealthy industrialist. Unfortunately his past returns to upset his carefully laid plans. Featuring lighthearted wit, tremendous visual innovation, and masterful manipulation of sound, A Nous La Liberte is both a potent indictment of mechanized modern society and an uproarious comic delight.
