Histoire du soldat inconnu

Belgium, 1932 (MIFF 1966, Programme 35)

Director: Henri Storck

Storck's film - a minor classic - uses a montage of newsreel material to give an evocative portrait of the post World War I era, and gives a frightening prophetic picture of the inevitability of the catastrophe to come.
