What Truffaut is most interested in, as in all his films, is the effect this need for constant dissembling has on individual identity and relationships. Azema and Toubiana actually take up most of the track, and Depardieu only rings in once in a while, mainly during the last half of the track. Two of the greatest French actors meet in somewhat awkward love triangle/tryst during highly secretive days of the second world war.

He does expand on a lot of things, though, getting into more detail about the laws for theaters, film, and media in general, talks about the newspapers mentioned in the film, the resistance, and also gets into the fashions of the period, even hair styles. An exquisite movie based in Paris during WW11 when under German Control- the focus is around theatre and the Jewish involvement in the arts & entertainment. The first commentary presents film scholar Annette Insdorf, who has written about Truffaut and (as she constantly reminds us) acted as translator for Truffaut, even translating for him after a screening of this film in New York.

Catherine Deneuve, wife of the director and lead lady, is gorgeous as she balances the needs of her cranky Jewish husband in hiding (Heinz Bennent; he's continuing to direct by listening in to rehearsals through the pipes) and those of her handsome leading man (Gerard Depardieu), whose only way of coming on seems to be to grasp a pretty woman by the hand, gaze into it and murmur, "I seem to see two women here."

The interview thankfully offer some excellent information about the making of the film. Life in France under the Nazis always makes for an exciting film and life in a theatrical company is also generally interesting.

It is not a thriller or really a drama... it is a carefully constructed story that takes you on a journey involving several interlocked but very different characters - it is sub-titled in French; normally I hate this format, but did not find it much of a distraction- still you do miss subtle facial expressions and gestures... it would be worth a second watch, and to not focus as much on the French captions.

I liked this feature, and it was a nice intro to the next feature. Performing The Last Metro– (1080p, 14:56) interviews with actors Andrea Ferreol, Paulette Dubost, Sabine Haudepin, and second-assistant director Alain Tasma.

Truffaut goes beyond telling a story of love and tragedy in Nazi-occupied France, it shows how intensely he feels about art and theater and how inseparable they are from human life. Delerue’s stature grew, thanks to scores for such films as The Two of Us and King of Hearts, and eventually he would not only win an Oscar (for 1979’s A Little Romance) and three Césars in a row (for Get Out Your Handkerchiefs, Love on the Run, and The Last Metro) but also be named a Commander of Arts and Letters, one of France’s highest cultural honors. I actually enjoyed the film so the last two don’t really count, but I can’t say the track exposed anything new. In this 2009 video piece, actors Andréa Ferréol, Paulette Dubost, and Sabine Haudepin, along with actor and second assistant director Alain Tasma, recall the joys and challenges of working on THE LAST METRO. Moving on from the commentaries to the supplements section of this release we first come across a lone deleted scene running about 5-minutes. I’m a history buff so I did enjoy some of the content, but it is weak, filled with dead spots, and should have had more Depardieu (his opening, where he talks about Truffaut’s films being too “bourgeois” and that The 400 Blows was overblown, made me hope for more from him.).
