I Imagine the Cold

France, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Fiction)

Director: Phillipe E. Sorlin

In the mindless and cruel world of combat, bodies lie where they fall in the mud or are dropped into a pit. A letter from a lover sparks longings for another time and a suicide pact only half fulfilled. The barbarity of his com­rades shocks a soldier into withdrawal from his identity and into the darkness and confu­sion of the soul.
