In this sprawling, star-laden film, we see the struggles of various French resistance factions to regain control of Paris near the end of World War II. The Nazi general in charge of Paris, Dietrich von Cholitz (Fröbe), is under orders from Hitler himself to burn the city if he cannot control it or if the Allies get too close. Much of the drama centers around the moral deliberations of the general, the Swedish ambassador (Welles), and the eager but desperate leaders of the resistance.Written by

"¿Is Paris burning?" Hitler asked this when the war was finished...
A french and american co-production, it's a long movie about the french resistence. The excellent direction by Rene Clement shows one of the more importants battles in the History of war. I would like to see the director's cut version of this film. Many international stars appear in this movie like Glenn Ford, Kirk Douglas, George Chakiris, Gert Froebe, Anthony Perkins, Robert Stack, Orson Welles... but the french actors are the greats players here: Charles Boyer, Leslie Caron, Pierre Vaneck, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Simone Signoret, Claude Rich... The best of this film is Alain Delon, a wonderful actor as resistance member Chaban-Delmas, fighting for the liberty of his country. I love "Paris brûle-t-il?" because is a strong story that damns the war and tells between us a battle for the Liberty.
