Robert Enrico's movie enjoys three good leads :Nathalie Baye,Pierre Arditi and Christophe Malavoy;an interesting situation: the border between Collaboration and Resistance is thin ,and that's Charles's dilemma.His shoes factory is doing fine,with the Germans' blessing .Enter Jerome and Alice :both are heroes in the shadow,they help Jews on their way to Spain and America.Much more realistic than his overrated "Le Vieux Fusil" ,"De Guerre Lasse " suffers from pointless flashbacks and the lack of a true writer:Françoise Sagan's characters are worthy of a Harlequin romance,and it takes all the talent of the interprets to give them some substance.Madame Sagan oversimplifies and reduces the problem to a love triangle.
