FRA/BEL | 2016 | Emmanuel Courcol, with Romain Duris, Céline Sallette

In his first feature, director Emmanuel Courcol convincingly creates the psychological and physical horrors experienced in the aftermath of the First World War. Georges (Romain Duris) is a war hero who has been living a nomad and adventurous life in Africa for four years when he decides to come back to France. Having a hard time finding his place in post-war society, Georges makes the acquaintance of Hélène, a teacher, with whom he begins a tumultuous relationship and at the same time attempts to heal his wounds.
