This is an unusual French movie that addresses the complexity of war especially the differing French positions during the Second World War. Here is an universal dilemma. Face with a threat, what shall we do? Fight? Or Flee? Is there a way to resolve the issue without violence? Can violence be used honorably? Confine to the time allowed for a movie, many of the issues are not not given enough space to develop. The director could have done better by not raising some of the sub plots e.g. colonialism. Still kudos to the people for bringing up such a difficult subject. Green lighting this project must have been wrenching. But it deserves to be made. And it deserve our attention. As long as we have conflicts, this movie will always remain relevant.
