            The Collapse

            Release date : 22/08/2019
            From June 10, 1940, when the French government fled Paris, to the 17th, when Pétain announced his intention to sign an armistice with Germany—eight days that completely undid France.
            “The gas level in the tank was getting dangerously low. Madame Perret was constantly complaining and fighting with Bernard, who wanted to take the map from her. Across from the column, big orange flashes were rising up from the horizon: a bombing? Fuel depots in flames? Exhausted, feeling the nausea... “The gas level in the tank was getting dangerously low. Madame Perret was constantly complaining and fighting with Bernard, who wanted to take the map from her. Across from the column, big orange flashes were rising up from the horizon: a bombing? Fuel depots in flames? Exhausted, feeling the nausea returning, bothered by her clothing soaked in sweat and her slip that was too tight, Jacqueline ended up falling asleep, her head on the maid’s shoulder and the dog in her lap, rocked by the grinding of the axles, the neighing and the clacking of hooves, and a chorus of girls who, somewhere behind them, were singing Tino Rossi…” Cast onto the uncertain routes of the exodus, we find an upper class Parisian family, a soldier, a Fascist lawyer, a solitary woman… and many others, under the glorious summer sun, as well as the bullets and bombs, caught in a nationwide foxhunt in a country at war where no one yet knows who will surrender. With The Collapse, at once a vitriolic fresco, hyperrealistic road trip, chronicle of a mass exodus and a coming-of-age story, Romain Slocombe adds a masterful centerpiece to his great national noir epic.
