Storyline

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.

Goofs

In the Péricourt house, Albert hides behind the curtain so Pradelle cannot see him. Outside, the car lights are suddenly turned on and his silhouette appears through the curtain. But in the next shot, Pradelle gets to his car which is parked backwards against the house. The lights could not have created Albert's silhouette. See more »

User Reviews

 
Sublime film, both from the script and graphic point of view
8 December 2018 | by manuel-flurySee all my reviews

A magnificent story bathed in the poetry of extraordinary sets and costumes.

In addition to a host of brilliant actors, the subject evoked (the smashed faces) is rarely recounted in the cinema.

Albert Dupontel has created a masterpiece.
