January 16 @ 8:00 pm - 10:14 pm€5 - €9
During World War One, the women of the Paridier farm, under the deft hand of Hortense, the family’s matriarch (Nathalie Baye) grapple with the workload while the men are off at the front. New tools allow the women to triumph over the land, newfound independence is acquired, yet emotions are stirred especially when the men return from the front on short leaves. Acclaimed filmmaker Xavier Beauvois (Of Gods and Men) revels in the beauty of the French countryside, unravaged by war, yet also keeps his focus on the intricate drama that plays out against the upheaval of the Great War.
