Plot: Acclaimed French filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier directs this World War II epic about collaboration and resistance in the French film industry during German occupation. Set in 1940s Paris, SAFE CONDUCT explores the moral conflicts faced by artists under the fascist Vichy regime through the real-life stories of two individuals: scriptwriter Jean Aurenche (Denis Podalydes) and director Jean Devaivre (Jacques Gamblin). While Aurenche spends his time evading the Nazis' attempts to employ him, Devaivre works for the German-run Continental Films as a cover for his role in the French Resistance, subtly incorporating subversive messages into his work. Like Francois Truffaut's THE LAST METRO, Tavernier's thought-provoking film raises profound questions about the role of art during wartime.
