La grande illusion by Jean Renoir( Visual )

115 editions published between 1937 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 2,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Renoir's meditation on friendship and chivalry in the midst of Europe's first mechanized war, was based on his own experiences as a French combat pilot and a prisoner of war. Renoir wrote the film as Europe slid towards World War II. Three French pilots, shot down during World War I, are drawn together during an escape attempt, despite different class backgrounds. Captain de Boeldieu is a wealthy aristocrat; Lieutenant Maréchal a self assured mechanic; and Rosenthal, a prosperous banker. Together they develop a daring plan to escape their imprisonment in a Bavarian castle. While escaping, Captain de Boeldieu is shot by the camp commander, but Marechal and Rosenthal manage to get away and eventually make their way back to France. When it was released, the film received an Academy Award as well as a prize at the Venice Film Festival, but due to the film's pacifist stance, it was banned in Germany and Italy
