A story of a brilliant master sergeant with a great career behind him and transferred to yet another post, his attraction to a younger man eventually overrides him, to a point where his latent homosexuality, finally emerges.
If as the Sergent says, he went into the Army when he was 16 and he has been in the armed services for 26 years, that would make the Sergent 42 years old in this film that takes place in 1952 France. Ergo, The Sergent was born in 1910.
The story takes place in 1952, but all the women's fashions and hair styles are strictly 1967-1968.
