A very beautiful movie

Olivier Gourmet gives here one more awesome performance as an ex soldier wounded because of the war - the story takes place in the early days of 1918, in France - an officer who lost his leg and who hires a waitress, a female caretaker for his big family mansion and estate, and also to take care of his horse. Of, course, as you can guess, our lead will fall in love with the young woman, mother of a eight years daughter and single too, widow from war. It's a very moving, sensitive film here, and I repeat, carried by convincing performances. The perfect feature for large audiences. An excellent piece of work.

I don't know the director, nor the female lead. A very good actress who looks like Marion Cotillard.
