Commentry (French pronunciation: [k?mt?i]; Auvergnat: Comentriac) is a commune in the department of Allier in central France. It lies 42 miles (68 km) southwest of Moulins in the valley of the OEil. It is within 8 km of one of the geographic centres of France. The film actress Yvonne Rozille (1900-1985) was born in Commentry.
Commentry gave its name to a coal field over 21 square kilometres in extent, and had important foundries and forges.
