From his childhood in Poland to his adolescence in Nice to his years as a student in Paris and his tough training as a pilot during World War II, this tragi-comedy tells the romantic story ... See full summary »
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.
So different than all the other special effects agenda pushing movies out there. beautiful atmosphere ,full of emotion , wonderful story .hollywood should really learn something from the french.
i really don't understand why and how this movie is a low profile one.
if you consider if it's worth the time - DEFINITELY !
i enjoyed every minute
