Storyline

France, 1940. German troops have just invaded the country, but in the rural idyll of the family chateau inhabited by 20-year-old Mellie with her impoverished aristocrat father Alexandre and adolescent cousin Robinson, the war still seems far away # apart from the fact that Mellie's rich and unpopular fiancé André has been drafted into the army. For Robinson and his friends the same age, including the temperamental Bertrand, the war is merely a game they play in the remoteness of the blue island in the lake. Fifteen-year-old Bertrand already feels quite grown-up: when Mellie, his great love, succumbs to his advances, he is introduced to physical love. Bertrand's romantic sense of honor is deeply offended, however, when France negotiates a cease-fire with the Germans. To save his country's honor, he decides to embark on the "military defense" of the blue island: he has finally seen an opportunity to get quits with the absent enemy and to risk his life for the glory of his country. With ... Written by Anonymous
