Lancombe, Lucien (1974): love, class, hatred and the banality of evil in occupied France

A lecture by Profesor Ginette Vincendeau

At the heart of Lois Malle's groundbreaking and controversial film ios the liason between Lucien, a young, ineducated peasant in Figeac, South-West France, and France Horn, the sophisticated daughter of a wealthy Jewish tailor in hiding. Lucien and France's budding relationship is played out against the background of the local GEstapo headquarters and the larger historical context in whoch normal power relations are inverted and moral boundaries blurred.
