Synopsis
November 1918, a few days before the Armistice: Edouard Péricourt saves Albert Maillard’s life. These men have nothing in common but the war they are fighting. By ordering a senseless assault, Lieutenant Pradelle destroys their lives but binds them as companions in misfortune. Condemned to live, the two create an extraordinary scam during the effervescent period of the 1920’s… Based on the novel by Pierre Lemaître (winner of the Prix Goncourt in 2013)… The director and ensemble cast have created a magnificent film destined to become a classic. Nominated for 13 César Awards!
