Der jüdische Regisseur Steiner versteckt sich im Keller seines Theaters vor den Nazis. Nur seine Frau Marion kennt das Versteck. Jeden Abend steigt sie hinab, erzählt von den Proben und dem Leben oben. Je länger Steiner sich verbergen muss, desto mehr verliert er den Bezug zur Realität und schon bald auch seine Frau Marion, die sich in den Darsteller Bernard verliebt. François Truffauts Besatzungsfilm ist alles andere als todernst. Mit Ironie und Spitzfindigkeit inszeniert der Regisseur ein geniales Wechselspiel aus Theater und Wirklichkeit. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)
