Les routes du sud

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Drama
Release Date:January 1, 1978
Running time:97 minutes
Cast:Yves Montand
Director:Joseph Losey

Description: Roads to the South is often omitted from the official lists of Joseph Losey's films, principally because it was made for French television rather than theatres. Conceived by screenwriter Jorge Semprun and star Yves Montand as a sequel to Alain Resnais' La Guerre est Finie, the film details the further misadventures and disillusionments of Larrea, an aging old-line leftist (Montand). We find the protagonist a member of the European Establishment, embittered because he has been shut out from the radical movement of the 1970s. Now a wealthy author, Larrea from time to time yearns for the excitement of his antifascist days, but the parade has passed him by. He ultimately reverts to his old ways, with startlingly violent results. Co-scripted by director Losey Roads to the South was originally titled Les Routes du Sud.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
