A Nous la Liberte (Liberty for Us) is a satirical film brought to you by silent-film extraordinaire Ren' Clair (And Then There Were None). Next to Sous le toits de Paris and Le Million, A Nous la Liberte was one of Clair's first attempts at synchronizing sound with motion picture - an effort by which he further proved his talents as an artist. The film essentially ridicules capitalistic entrepreneurs who are overwhelmingly consumed by their own greed at the turn of the 20th century during a period of industrialization. However, Clair offers his ironic commentary in a most subtle method - its as though his criticism seeps into your mind without any knowledge of it doing so. A Nous la Liberte centers around an ex-convict who craftily escapes his due sentence and adopts a life as a wealthy industrialist. Just as he begins to gloat in pools of money, his past begins to haunt his psyche - it even encroaches on his prospects for the future. He is eventually forced to hit the old dusty road with an old cellmate. Is it possible his undying lust for wealth got the best of him? A Nous La LIberte stars Henri Marchand, Raymond Cordy, and Rolla France. A must see for all those interested in social criticism and French film.moreless
