The Reprieve

September 1938: in a heatwave, Europe tensely awaits the outcome of the Munich conference. In Paris people are waiting too, among them Mathieu, Jacques and Philippe – not one of them ready to fight.

Cutting from one scene to the next, Sartre depicts the hopes, fears and self-deception of Munich, building a powerful montage of that critical week when Europe, in its pathetic longing for a reprieve, blinkered itself against the threat of war.
