A Pig Across Paris
La Traversée de Paris 

In a cold, hungrily-rationed, blacked-out City of Lights under the Occupation, a transaction involving black market pork from a crabby, penny-pinching Montmartre butcher, is carried out like a modern-day drug deal. But straight arrow ex-black-marketeer Bourvil can't manage the full trek across nocturnal Paris with four cases of pork himself, so he recruits a meat-mooching, garrulous stranger-he-met-in-a-bar (Jean Gabin), an adventurer who keeps getting them into, and then hilariously talking them out of, trouble with both the Germans and French police, as Bourvil's nervous sweat pools in the gutter. But there's a chilling, class-laden final twist... Beloved in France as one of the country's greatest classics, and championed by directors like Bertrand Tavernier and François Truffaut, A Pig Across Paris had a tiny release here in the 1950s before disappearing completely. This new restoration features an all-new translation and subtitles by Lenny Borger. (French release: 1956)
