The Damned

1947, France, 105m, Remastered 2K DCP

A claustrophobic and gritty post-war gem from the director of the classic Forbidden Games. At the close of the WWII, a U-boat leaves Oslo for South America carrying German leaders and pro-Nazi officials who hope to escape their fate in Europe. But when a young French doctor is forced to join them to tend to a wounded passenger, the stage is set for scheming, intrigue, and mutiny. “[It] feels like the last film of the Occupation.”—Dave Kehr

A film by Rene Clément
