Emile de Antonio
Harry S. Ashmore,
I first saw "One man's war" in the late 1980s, when it was shown at an art cinema here in Manchester in the UK. I have long been fascinated by the occupation of France during World War II-a peculiarly horrible but fascinating period, when all the norms in society were turned upside down-the crooks became the cops for example.
This film is a remarkable one, for its juxtaposition of wartime newsreels with commentary drawn from Ernst Junger's journals with a beautifully chosen soundtrack.
I know this film is very much a minority interest-there were only five other people in the cinema when I saw it.
I would dearly love to know what all the pieces of music in the soundtrack are-can anyone help?
