J'ACCUSEJ’ACCUSE (12) 1938 FRANCE GANCE, ABEL DUAL FORMAT DVD & BLU RAY £19.99
Acclaimed as one of cinema’s finest anti-war films. Having experienced the horrors of the First World War, idealistic poet Jean Diaz turns to technology in a bid to prevent further barbarity. But a meddling and unscrupulous bureaucracy allows Jean’s plans to be hijacked as Europe slides towards another great conflict.

Using his epic 1919 silent version of the film as a template, Gance pits mankind’s romanticism against its capacity for savagery.

Originally released on the eve of the Second World War (and the same year as Jean Renoir’s La Grande Illusion), J’accuse urges us to honour the memory of the fallen by learning the lessons of a catastrophic past
