GRAND CIRCUS

forts the boy: "Look at your
nose; it's not at all big."
"But Gramp," Claude replies,
"Look at your nose! And your
hair is curly!"
And while Claude runs from him,
shouting "You're one of them!
you're one of them!" the old man
finds, to his chagrin, that his nose
is, indeed, quite "Jewish."
Again, after Gramp admits un-
happily that Jesus was a Jew,
Claude reminds him, "So Jesus'
Father is a Jew."
Claude Berri, director of this
film, which won 10 international
awards, selected an unknown for
the role of Claude. In Alain Cohen,
he discovered Everyboy, a delight-
ful package of mischief, sadness
and love. Just a boy.
Simon, the veteran actor, is his
ideal foil, bumbling and ignorant—
the old France who cannot forget
the image of Petain the Hero on a
white horse. Never mind that he
has betrayed his country; Petain
of World War I will rise again.
What Petain stands for in World
War II does not occur to the old
man.
Yet, without quite realizing it,
Gramp changes under the care-
ful, loving tutelage of the boy.
Whereas, at first the Jews and
the English run neck and neck
on his hate list (right after the
Huns), by the end of the film—
and the war—he acknowledges
that the Jews probably are "no
worse than the rest."
A significant surrender for the
old fake.
If the viewer of this film doesn't
come away with new faith in Child
Power, he's got an iron-clad heart.
"The Two of Us" is magnificent.
—C.D.
