An affecting human drama of love, loss, and resilience unfolds against the backdrop of World War I. The women of the Paridier farm, under the deft hand of Hortense, the family's matriarch (Nathalie Baye,) must grapple with the workload while the men, including two sons, are off at the front. Hortense reluctantly brings on an outsider, the hard-scrabble teenage orphan, Francine (Iris Bry), to help her daughter Solange (Laura Smet). New tools allow the women to triumph over the land, newfound independence is acquired, yet emotions are stirred especially when the men return from the front on short leaves. Acclaimed filmmaker Xavier Beauvois (Of Gods and Men) revels in the mysteries and beauties of the French countryside, here unravaged by war, with painterly images bathed in natural light, yet keeps his focus on the intricate drama that plays out against the upheaval of the Great War.

The only problem I had with the movie was the dialogue. There were two times when I would try to understand what was going on, and it was impossible. The director could not communicate the mental processes that occur when a person is suffering. The movie was shot in an extremely bleak and depressing way. It almost feels like a documentary. If you want to know what it is like to be a POW in WWII, you should watch this movie.

This is a very slow film, which is great, because it is a dark film. The story is very simple and the story unfolds slowly, but it is a good film. I would recommend this film to everyone, because it is a good film.

I liked this film. It's not a historical masterpiece, but it's a worthwhile film about people in a time of war. It's a lot of fun, with a good sense of humor. My only complaint is that the acting is a bit uneven. Everyone is a little uneven, but there are moments of both great and mediocre acting. The film is essentially a war drama, but the war itself is more interesting than the war itself. The film is basically a rather slow film, and it's not necessarily a film that demands you get up and get involved with the action. It's just a good film, and I can't think of a better way to spend an hour and a half.

I saw this film after reading about it on the internet. So I'm a little surprised that I'm not a fan of war movies. The movie was actually pretty good, though. The movie is about two brothers, the brother of the main character is being trained by the Gestapo to kill Jews, but he doesn't want to do it. The movie is very slow, but the story is interesting. The characters are very well written, the music is good, the actors are also very good. The movie is really bad for a young girl, but I recommend it.

I saw this film at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. It was very well-received, and it was so very well-received because it was not a film that I would have expected. I don't know how I got into this film. Maybe I had never heard of it. Maybe I saw a trailer. Maybe I read about it. Whatever the reason, I am so glad that I saw it. It is so very powerful, and so very very well-done. It is a movie that I will be watching over and over and over again. I have already watched it twice, and I am so glad that I did. The only thing that I thought was a little strange was the soundtrack. It was quite apparent that some of the music was not to be heard in the theater. But in all honesty, the music is the main reason to see this film. I just can't get it out of my mind. This is a movie that I will always remember, and it will be one of the most meaningful movies that I have ever seen. I'm also a big fan of music, and I love music in general, so I was very happy that I had the opportunity to see this film.

I liked the first half of this film, especially the ending. The whole story line, with the Italian characters, the French characters, the German, the British and Italian spies. It was very interesting, and if you are Italian, you will be touched by the film. A great work of art, but the story just goes nowhere. The next scene is just absolutely amazing and I just can't stop watching it. But, there is a problem, you can't wait to see what happens to the character, and there is no resolution. At last, the film is only 85 minutes, and I was extremely disappointed. But I will watch the film again, to see if it is worth to watch.

This is the story of a girl in search of herself. There are many things that you don't understand or think you can understand. What you do know, that you cannot explain, is the fact that you are not just a girl, or a man, or a woman, but a real person, with feelings, and a personality, that is so different from any other. One has to accept that she is not a perfect person, but still she is a person. You cannot just wait for a special moment to understand her, or for her to explain everything. It is like a history of a life. She is a little girl who wants to be a man. She is not a boy, she is not a girl, she is not just a girl, but a real person, with feelings, and a personality. I am sorry, but this movie is really hard to understand. It is not a movie for everybody, but for people who like a good movie that doesn't try to tell you the story, or tell you everything, it shows you a person, who can change, and it shows you a good story. That's a very important message.

A great movie. A movie that has a very good message about the war in Vietnam and about the suffering of the Vietnamese people. It's a movie that is a little bit slow at first but it is a great movie, I recommend it.

The title of the movie is not the most interesting aspect of the movie but I do recommend it to the most critical ones, because you will see how the character is being shown from his first moments in the movie to his last moments. I am also convinced that one can't make a good movie without talking about the first moments of the movie. This is where everything starts and ends for the movie, and it is the only time where you can really appreciate a movie from the very beginning. This is the most important part of the movie, because you learn a lot about the characters and how they behave and how they are linked to each other. You will get the impression that everything is happening in a continuous time and that it is quite interesting to follow the story. This is the reason why I recommend it to the most critical ones. The movie is very important to understand what this war was like for the characters. You can't forget that a lot of people died in the war and that this movie has a lot of information about the war. The war itself is a major factor for understanding the movie and the people. I do not know how many movies that have been made about this war but the way the movie has been made is absolutely amazing. It is in black and white and the movie is not at all boring, it is one of the best ways to see this movie. In summary, I think this movie is great, and it has a lot of information for people who want to understand the war.

This movie was superb. It had so many things going for it. The cast was excellent, the story was great, and the director did a great job with the editing. The movie is about a group of Jewish refugees that is being kept in the camp during the war. They are under threat by the Nazis and the SS, and are forced to work in the mines. The story was very realistic and it was very difficult to watch. The actors did a great job in portraying the characters. The movie was very interesting and had a very good message about the Holocaust. The movie was very well done and I was very impressed by the movie. I highly recommend this movie.

I know what you're thinking. "How could I possibly like this film if I've never seen it?" I was shocked at the first few seconds of the film when I noticed it was made by a non-American. This film is visually stunning and the acting is top notch. The first half of the film is a slow, introspective look at a small German town and the choices made by the residents and the ways they survive the horrors of war. From a first time viewer, I was surprised by how the film moved. It is slow and uses slow motion to portray the horrors of war, which, while not as graphic as some would like, still has a very strong effect. One of the things that is so effective about the film is the characters. I haven't seen the German actors and actresses before, but I think they are the best actors and actresses I've seen in any film I've seen. The film is very well done, with the camera work being very beautiful and the characters not one bit hard to look at. The film was also very thought provoking and is definitely not one that I would re-watch. The reason why I say this is because I know the final scene will be so powerful, I don't want to spoil it. I've watched the film about 10 times and I'll probably watch it again soon. There are several scenes in the film that are unforgettable. It's a film you don't want to miss.

I'm not sure if it's because I'm not French or I have never seen this movie before, but I really enjoyed this movie. The acting is great, the story is great and the movie itself is great. I've never seen a movie like this before. I can't wait to see it again. The only reason I give it a 9 instead of a 10 is because it's not as well known as I expected it to be. I had heard it was a French movie but I had never heard of it. I'm not sure if that's the reason I enjoyed it as much as I did, but I'm going to check it out again. If you like movies like "The Deer Hunter", "The Godfather" or "The Godfather II", you should definitely see this movie. It's worth the money. I give it a 9 out of 10.

A very good film, but one that I have to comment on the ending. I found it hard to believe that this movie ended in such a way that it was not shown in the trailer. I found it hard to believe that the woman in the trailer was not in the film at all. I found the ending to be very sad and very confusing. The movie was a very good movie, but I felt that it should have been shown in the trailer. I was very disappointed with the ending of this movie.

I can't tell if this film was a true story or not but it's really hard to believe that there was not a single man in the entire army who were not homosexual. Well the movie was beautifully filmed and the story was very well told but I just cannot believe that this was a true story. The acting was excellent but if the war was happening in France and France was an important player in the conflict the actors would have been of a different nationality. But anyway, one thing I can say for sure is that this film is a must see.

A brilliant and chilling film. One of the best films ever made in France. When you are a child, or young adult, you can watch this film. The first time you see it, you are shocked. In the second time, you are like a machine. In the third, you don't care. This film is so brilliant, that it could be a great drama. A great drama. Because it is so well shot, so well written, it is hard to watch this film, and just like a great drama, you can't even remember what happened, or what the movie was about. It is a great film. And I would recommend it to anyone. * out of *

I am a big fan of French films, and this film was just as good as the others I have seen. I am not French and I have never seen a French film, so I am not sure what to expect, but I was impressed with the acting and directing. I liked the way the film was shot. The scenes were well thought out, with the actors and actresses giving a convincing performance. I also liked the way the film was filmed. The camera angle was very interesting and gave a feeling of reality to the film. The story was interesting, and the characters were very interesting. The actors were great, especially the lead actress. The film was very well acted, and I believe the director had a good eye for the actors. I think he should do more films like this, and I hope to see more from him in the future.

A great film about the liberation of a French POW camp. The film is very well made, the acting is excellent, and the story is very well told. The film is very disturbing at times, but it is done in a way that allows the viewer to get a feel for what the prisoners were going through. The ending is very sad, but at the same time it is very hopeful. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to see a good film about a dark time in French history.

Very few films have affected me so much over the years as this one has. It was a wonderful movie to watch in my mind and to absorb the images. I have been told that "From the Mouth of Madness" is one of the best movies ever made. Well, if that is true, it is a fantastic film that I have found to be so meaningful. I always look to the last scenes in a movie for the powerful messages that they convey. I especially love the last scene because it is so telling and it goes so deep. I recommend this film highly.

I am very surprised that this film has not been shown in a cinema in the UK. It is an excellent film and shows the horrors of the Holocaust in a very powerful way. It is a very personal film, and the acting is excellent. I also found the soundtrack to be very powerful and beautiful. It really makes you feel for the characters and the situation they are in. I recommend this film to anyone who is interested in the Holocaust. It is an extremely powerful film and it is well worth watching. If you are not aware of the Holocaust, this film will be very hard to watch. It is not a film for the squeamish or the easily offended. This film is a very important film and I think it deserves to be seen by everyone.

I first saw this film at the cinema when it was first released in 1983. It was one of the films I saw on a weekday afternoon in a cinema in which there were about six other people. It was a very odd film, but it was a lot of fun. The film has a very strong and compelling central narrative, which is the story of the Holocaust, the Holocaust itself and the Holocausts survivors. It is an extremely moving film, which at times seems to be about more than one thing at the same time. I highly recommend it.

There's no doubt that "The Pink Panther" is one of the best films of all time. It's a classic, an iconic film that everyone can relate to and enjoy. The plot is simple, and yet complex. The cast is excellent, with Steve Martin playing the title character very well, and the other actors playing the supporting roles well too. The cinematography is excellent, with the dark, gloomy scenes, the beautiful, colorful scenes, and the amazing shots of the city. The acting is good, but nothing to rave about. The script is excellent, and the direction is good, but nothing to rave about. The direction is one of the most important aspects of the film. The pacing is excellent, with the film moving at a good pace. The story is very simple, yet it has enough twists and turns to keep you interested. The story is interesting, with many twists and turns, and it is very good to have a good plot. The only thing I did not like was the film's music. It's very important to have good music, and this film does not have it's own music. The music is very average, and does not match the scenes that the film is in. Overall, "The Pink Panther" is a very good film, and one of the best films of all time.

I'm not sure if it's a movie, a documentary, or a film, but it's definitely not a movie. It's a documentary about the French Resistance. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but it's definitely a movie. The director is not really known for his movies, but I think he did a really good job here. I like the way he tells the story. The music is really great too. The actors do a good job too. This is a movie that I recommend to anyone who is interested in the French Resistance.

I just came back from seeing this movie, and I must say that I was impressed. It was a bit long, but it was well worth the wait. The movie was about a French family during the war, who are all members of a large family who is in hiding. They are forced to move to a new location, and they are forced to hide in a farmhouse, where they have to learn to survive on their own. It was a very interesting movie, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in World War 2. This movie is about the way people reacted to the war, and it shows the hardships that the family had to endure. It is a movie that should be seen by everyone.

As a French student, I was really moved by the film "La Vieille Taupe" (1966). I think it is a must-see for all French students. This is one of the most touching and moving films I've ever seen. I especially liked the plot and the way it was executed. I recommend it to all French students.
