FRA/BEL | 2020 | dir. Lucas Belvaux with Gérard Depardieu, Catherine Frot, Jean-Pierre Darroussin, Yoann Zimmer, Félix Kysyl, Edouard Sulpice

Presented in the official selection at the Cannes Film Festival 2020 and adapted from the eponymous novel by Laurent Mauvignier, Lucas Belvaux’s latest film unites on screen Gérard Depardieu, Catherine Frot and Jean-Pierre Darroussin. In 1960 Bernard, Rabut, Février and many others were called up to fight in the Algerian War. Two years later, they returned to France. They said nothing and got on with their lives. But forty years on, it takes only very little — a birthday party, a gift found in someone’s pocket — for the past to overwhelm those who have denied it for so long.

The French Film Festival is postponed until further notice. Stay tuned: subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on social media for the latest update.
