  1. Really enjoyed your blog post. I found it especially interesting that the film disappeared from France and reappeared because of the Russians. I imagine the celebration of the recapture of Fort Douaumont must be reminiscent of the singing of “La Marseillaise” in Casablanca. Do you think Renoir’s film inspired that?

    • The scenes are very similar, though I haven’t found anything that links the two together. I would not be surprised if the scene in Grand Illusion did inspire the scene in Casablanca.
