Director: Serge Bozon
“Bresson meets the Beatles… a WWI drama that unexpectedly breaks into spirited song” - Variety
In the fall of 1917, Camille (Sylvie Testud) receives a letter from her soldier husband telling her she'll never hear from or see him again. Worried, she disguises herself as a teenage boy and sets out to find her husband. Still incognito, Camille joins a group of soldiers separated from their regiment, and heads to the Dutch border in their company.
Director Serge Bozon (whose Mods also screens at MIFF this year) brings his typically unconventional slant to this war drama, with soldiers unexpectedly breaking into Small Faces-style songs at key moments.
Serge Bozon is a guest of the Festival.
