Oscar Movies: La Guerre Est Finie (1967)

In this political melodrama, directed by Alain Resnais, Yves Montand plays an aging anti-Franco revolutionary, who has not given up his hope for change, even though he knows that his cause was lost decades ago.

The tale, which contains some erotic sequences, unfolds as a romantic triangle between Montand and the two women in his life: his mistress Ingrid Thulin and his young student lover Genevieve Bujold.
