Light In The Sky
13 April 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Set during World War I in 1915, this episode sees four French soldiers witnessing a mysterious heavenly light in the sky, which inspires them to cease fighting, and walk away from the battlefield. This later leads to their arrests, as they are put on trial for desertion and cowardice in the face of the enemy. They persist in their story in spite of government disbelief, and their earnestness of a peaceful feeling of serenity wins over their lawyer, though it will take independent verification of another eyewitness to clear them before their grim sentence would be carried out... Unusual episode works fine, though comparisons with far superior film "Paths Of Glory" are inevitable.
