Threats (French: Menaces) is a 1940 French drama film directed by Edmond T. Gréville and starring Mireille Balin, John Loder, Ginette Leclerc and Erich von Stroheim.[1] Gréville began production on the film shortly after the Munich Agreement of September 1938.[2] It was shot at the François 1er Studios in Paris. The film's sets were designed by the art director Lucien Jaquelux.


In the late 1930s, a number of refugees from various European countries are living in the same hotel in the Latin Quarter of Paris. The caring Denise is sympathetic to their plight, particularly that of Professor Hoffman who is in exile from his family and homeland. The more frivolous Ginette, meanwhile, uses the hotel for rendezvous with her lover, Dick Stone, an Englishman living abroad to avoid potential military service. The prospect of the impending Second World War plays an increasing role on the various characters.
