In French with English subtitles.

Note: This is the 77 minute cut of the film, the most complete available. This film is also known as "The Heart of a Nation" and "Immortal France." Untel Père et Fils was filmed in 1940, just after the Nazi occupation of Paris. The film traces the fortunes of the Froment family of Montmartre, from the Franco-Prussian war of 1871 to World War II. Comedy and tragedy are deftly blended throughout; Raimu's visit to the Moulin Rouge is as hilarious as Michele Morgan's loss during World War I is heartbreaking. When the Nazis became privy to the existence of Untel Père et Fils, they ordered its director (Julien Duvivier) arrested and the negative destroyed. Both director and negative managed to escape to the U.S., where Untel Père et Fils was finally made available in 1943. Intriguingly enough, the man responsible for the salvation of the film was a German officer who happened to be a fan of Duvivier's work.
