      camille l Film américain sur la Seconde Guerre Mondiale sorti en 1943, on a très vite compris qu'on ne sera pas devant une oeuvre très subtile en visionnant cette Croix de Lorraine. S'ouvrant et se fermant sur une Marseillaise jouée à fond les ballons, avec de bons héros français (Gene Kelly et Cedric Hardwicke sont ce qu'on pourrait rapprocher le plus de Jésus et Joseph dans un film de ce genre), La Croix de Lorraine est une véritable oeuvre de propagande. Il n'en demeure pas moins que le film de Tay Garnett est assez bien mis en scène, avec quelques séquences particulièrement réussies, comme la grosse fusillade de fin dans une petite ville française et le montage étrangement sophistiqué pour ce genre de production. Peter Lorre est un méchant mémorable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Where the censors asleep the day they looked at this? Considering the time period remarkably brutal POW drama. Well acted and compelling. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member a good WWII pic made DURING WWII. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member The POW camp scenes are not that convincing and the outcome is a little idealistic, but it is inspiring wartime stuff. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member All CLASSICS are GOOD Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
