Subtitles. It's going on my top 10 list.
One of the best movies that I saw from France. "A Very Long Engagement" is about World War One, but it could be about any old war. There haven't been any movies about World War One. One film that tells of the horrors of World War One is the 1930 film "All Quiet On The Western Front," which is to me one of the best war movies of all time. "A Very Long Engagement," is about five men who are on the front lines refusing to fight is thrown to the Germans. One of the men on the front is in love with a woman (Audrey Tautou) waiting for his return.The film reminds viewers who never saw "All Quiet" of what is like to be on the front lines of battle in World War One.
