Synopsis

Northern Italy, September 1943. Two allied prisoners of war, an Englishman and an American, escape when the train transporting them to Germany is bombed. Taken in by a village priest who smuggles into Switzerland everyone trying to escape the Germans, the two prisoners become smugglers in turn, leading a group of Jewish refugees of all ages and ten different nationalities. With the Nazis in pursuit, they try to reach Switzerland over the mountains… One year after Marie-Louise, Leopold Lindtberg made another deeply humanist film on the theme of war refugees in Switzerland. Winner of the Grand Prix at the Festival de Cannes in 1946, Die letzte Chance was a success around the world, and established the importance of Lindtberg internationally.
