A remarkably rich movie, full of detail, and it grips and entertains like a detective story while never losing sight of the horrors of war.“

 – Philip French, The Observe

 

Reuniting the star and director of the much-loved Amelie (2001), this is the romantic story of a young woman (Audrey Tatou) and her relentless search for her lover who has gone missing on the battle fields of the Somme. The stories of the missing man’s comrades, told in flashback, are both dreamlike and heartbreaking.
