A war story. Like many others, at tehe first sigh. But impressive for its poetry and portrait of friendship and hommage of past. A film about two old men and a long chess game.The cinematography, the performances are more than good. Like the atmosphere. An useful film. About past. And its rehabilitation of humanity.
