Trivia

One scene is usually cut on TV: Harmony (Véronique Jannot) is holding the hand of an unconscious and seriously wounded soldier. When Dr Desprée (Alain Delon) enters the tent, he bluntly asks her what she is doing. Then he brutally draws back the blanket, and one can see the erect penis of the soldier (quite surprising for a 1979 movie). Then Dr Desprée harshly says: "It's not his hand he wants you to hold!".

from war
27 December 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it is not new Mash or one of Alain Delon great performances. it seems be a story about nothing. but many years, it was for me a memorable meeting. causes - the music of Philippe Sarde, the shadow of war created in a different manner, the love story and, sure, the work of Alain Delon. a film seductive for its cinnamon flavor. for the characters and inspired nuances of Francine Berge or Catherine Lachens, for the suggestion of parable, for few scenes who can remind the desert of soul. the dialogs are far to be inspired. but the story, confuse, as a collection of sketches, it is perfect for reflect a state of feelings. and that is the special basic gift of this poor , gray, cold movie.
