Amy Hargreaves' Pick for #FilmsOnTheGreen

LA TRAVERSEE DE PARIS
Directed by Claude Autant-Lara
With Bourvil, Jean Gabin, Louis de Funès
1956 | Comedy | 1h20 | France | Rialto Pictures

Two unlikely companions, the straight-laced Martin and the bombastic Grandgil, must smuggle four suitcases filled with contraband pork across Nazi-occupied Paris. While Martin tries to make it through efficiently, Grandgil seems to create, and then surmount, obstacles for the fun of it.

Films in French with English subtitles
