Le Ciel est à vous
Dir. Jean Grémillon. 1944, 105 mins. 16mm. With Madeleine Renaud, Charles Vanel, Jean Debucourt, Raymonde Vernay. A petit bourgeois couple is united in a common goal; Thérèse wants to break the solo long-distance flying record for women, and Pierre, a mechanic, is devoted to helping her, even as her passion becomes increasingly all-consuming and dangerous. This luminous film was Grémillon’s biggest box-office hit.
