Chéri-Bibi est un film français réalisé par Léon Mathot, sorti en 1938.

Synopsis

Un banquier est assassiné et la police soupçonne son neveu Raoul, qui est condamné à dix ans de bagne. Or, le véritable assassin est Théo, le frère de Ginette, la compagne de Francis dit Chéri-Bibi, un forçat évadé. Théo est assommé par Chéri-Bibi qui, dénoncé par Ginette, prend la fuite. Repris par la police, il retrouve en prison ses fidèles complices, La Ficelle et Fric-Frac ; Raoul (que Chéri-Bibi ne connait pas) fait aussi partie des prisonniers. Sur le bateau qui les conduit au bagne, les prisonniers menés par Chéri-Bibi tentent en vain de s’évader. Finalement, grâce à la complicité de la femme du patron de l’exploitation forestière où ils sont affectés, Chéri-Bibi et Raoul – qui souhaitent tous deux se venger de Théo – parviennent à s’évader du bagne avec leurs compagnons, mais Chéri-Bibi est grièvement blessé par les gardiens lancés à leur poursuite.

During the First World War, two French aviators, aristocratic Captain de Boeldieu (Pierre Fresnay) and working-class Lieutenant Maréchal (Jean Gabin), embark on a flight to examine the site of a blurred spot on photos from an earlier air reconnaissance mission. They are shot down by a German aviator and aristocrat, Rittmeister von Rauffenstein (Erich von Stroheim). Von Rauffenstein, upon returning to base, sends a subordinate to find out if the aviators are officers and, if so, to invite them to lunch. During the meal, von Rauffenstein and de Boeldieu discover they have mutual acquaintances—a depiction of the familiarity, if not solidarity, within the upper classes that crosses national boundaries.

At the start of World War II, Frenchmen from all walks of life enlist. Defeated by the invading Germans in 1940, Marshal Philippe Pétain signs a peace agreement and the troops surrender. However, instead of being repatriated to their homes, a group of soldiers find themselves in a brutal prison camp. Most of the men resist as best they can, and some, like Paul (Jean-Pierre Aumont), are willing to spend time in solitary confinement and be subjected to beatings, while others, such as Duval (Hume Cronyn), collaborate with their jailers to get an easier life. The men find solace from Father Sebastian (Sir Cedric Hardwicke), a priest who was also in the army and who counsels them wisely. Eventually Paul helps his fellow prisoners to escape. When they liberate a village, they realise that continued fighting is the only option, so they join the French Resistance.
