The Aurora Film Society Virtual Film Club brings you “Le Trou” for our December 15th discussion. This film is now streaming on the Critereon Channel.
Four prison inmates (Michel Constantin, Raymond Meunier, Jean Keraudy, Philippe Leroy) have been hatching a plan to literally dig out of jail when another prisoner, Claude Gaspard (Marc Michel), is moved into their cell. They take a risk and share their plan with the newcomer. Over the course of three days, the prisoners and friends break through the concrete floor using a bed post and begin to make their way through the sewer system — yet their escape is anything but assured.
