    ‘Le Trou,’ a Very French Prison Drama, Steals From Its Maker’s Life

    , nytimes.com

    Photo Rapturously received but mysteriously forgotten after its 1964 New York opening, Jacques Becker’s prison drama, “Le Trou” (“The Hole”), returns, digitally restored, for a week at Film Forum. Becker served as Jean Renoir’s assistant throughout the 1930s and was interned for a year by the Germans during the occupation of France. Both experiences inform “Le Trou.” The camaraderie of five prisoners sharing a cell and working together on a tunnel to freedom has something of the Renoir spirit; the movie’s sense of claustrophobia and obsession with prison procedure bespeaks firsthand knowledge

    Partit Demokratiku expressed its disapproval in the way a fish farm permit was recently approved to allow its relocation within a Natura 2000 site. Partit Demokratiku asked whether the relevant studies have been carried out in order for such permit to be issued, even though it is temporary. And whether we are setting a dangerous precedent of ‘issue the permit now’; ‘prepare the relevant studies later’
