Not bad
13 September 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

That's a film about post war traumatic disorders among young female soldiers who fought for the French army in Afghanistan. You deal here with a rather good character study, but that seems to hesitate about the lead to follow. That's a movie that should have been far better in that field. It remains interesting, supported by convincing actors and actresses. I think it lacked ambition. We can see it as a sort of documentary on just discharged soldiers, male or female, the period during which they prepare to get back into the real world, the civilization. Good try. I don't think this kind of topic has already been talked about in the French movie industry; or the period just after, once the former soldiers have returned home, and not the "in between". And let's not forget that now, In France, just after the terrible killings of Paris and Nice, the French army advertises to recruit many young folks. So, this film topic seems very in the mood, or not...
