I highly recommend the film: A Very Long Engagement (French: Un long dimanche de fiançailles), a 2004 French romantic war film, directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and starring Audrey Tautou. It is a fictional tale about a young woman’s desperate search for her fiancé who might have been killed on the battle of the Somme, during World War I. It was based on a novel of the same name, written by Sebastien Japrisot, first published in 1991. (Source: Wikipedia)

If you liked the film « Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain« , then you will enjoy this one (and I personally love films involving romance in the middle of a war…)! Lire la suite
