November 1918. A few days before the Armistice, Édouard Péricourt saves Albert Maillard's life. These two men have nothing in common but the war. Lieutenant Pradelle, by ordering a senseless assault, destroys their lives while binding them as companions in misfortune. On the ruins of the carnage of WWI, condemned to live, the two attempt to survive. Thus, as Pradelle is about to make a fortune with the war victims' corpses, Albert and Édouard mount a monumental scam with the bereaved families' commemoration and with a nation's hero worship.
Brilliant movie with many layers and reasons to see
We loved this french movie. We were glued to our chairs, because every scène of the movie was good. The art, the beleivable caracters, the storyline was surprising. It was cruel, funny, beautiful, entertaining. We loved every bit of it!
