Storyline

In France in the darkest days of the Great War Camille receives an alarming letter from her soldier boyfriend. Disguising herself as a man she sets off to try and find him. As she lives near the Western Fromt she hooks up with a passing group of French soldiers without too much trouble. But there's something a bit odd about these stragglers, and it's not just their habit of bursting into song at every opportunity. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

At Least Try to Simulate War
29 April 2010 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

I am just not sure what this movie was about, or if there was a point. We have this woman, Camille, who joins up with a band of actors dressed as soldiers in WWI in France. They wander around in very nice countryside that has not one hint of the war that raged and scarred the countryside in France. Time after time the group walks through fields and woods which are painfully obviously not affected in any way from war. The only time we get any idea that there could be a battle going on is when they are all in a boat and there are some sound effects and everyone ducks now and then. One other time they were in a small area where there had been a fire, but that area was very small. Where were the artillery-shell craters, the torn vegetation from small-arms fire,the front line? Where was any of it? I think the director was very lazy or broke and could not even simulate a war environment.

When Francoise appeared from nowhere that took the cake. He wanders across a field like a spirit. Nothing was settled. He wrote a letter at the beginning of the movie but that was not addressed.

Horrible movie. Waste of time.
