I saw this last night at the EuroCine 27 event; 27 movies from each European countries shown the same day in several European cities. I never heard of Le Bomin and barely heard of Derangère ("La Chambre des Officiers") and was fortunately surprised to discover these two great talents yet unknown from the large audience ! Derangère is absolutely astonishing playing the character Antonin Verset which is victim of post-WWI trauma, always living the same troubling scenes he endured the last six months of the War.
All cast is excellent and also a great work on cinematography offers some really nice shots, great landscapes and stunning faces. The editing is really well done with subtile bits of memories here and there that make sense more and more in the story. Also, the first minutes of the movie are showing real chilling WW-I archives.
This is not another action-flick; if you like sensitive and more psychologic movies that will really give you something to think about, then I absolutely recommend "Les Fragments d'Antonin" !
Let's see what Le Bomin will do next...
