THE SORROW AND THE PITY
1969, Milestone Films, 251 min, France/Switzerland/West Germany, Dir: Marcel Ophuls

This two-part look at the collaboration between the French government in Vichy and the Nazis during WWII is one of the most devastating films ever made. In a series of interviews with both supporters and opponents of the French-German arrangement, Ophuls revolutionized the art of nonfiction filmmaking. Famously featured in Woody Allen’s ANNIE HALL, the film received an Oscar nomination in 1971 for Best Documentary Feature.
