Bon Voyage (1944 film)

Bon Voyage 1944 is a short French language propaganda film made by Alfred Hitchcock for the British Ministry of Information. Although the film is shortminutes, and generally only of interest to Hitchcock completists, it is interesting for its use of two radically different interpretations of the same events, a technique not unlike that used by Akira Kurosawa in Rashomon 1950 and Fernando Meirelles in Cidade de Deus 2002.

A Scotsman, a downed Royal Air Force air gunner who was previously a prisoner of war explains how he travelled with great difficulty through Germanoccupied France. He was accompanied most of the way by a companion who was another escaped prisoner of war, and they were both aided by various courageous Resistance workers. His companion gave him a letter to deliver once he reached London, supposedly a very personal and private letter.However, when we see the Intelligence officers explanation of the same events, it becomes clear that the gunners companion, who was supposedly helping him along, was in fact a Gestapo spy, who murdered several of the Resistance fighters and reported the rest to the authorities, and that the personal letter the gunner was going to deliver in London contains secret information that would have helped the enemy. ........
