December 17th – Joyeux Noël

I initially heard of this movie some time ago, it is the story of a truce in 1914 between the Scottish, French and German soldiers along the Western front. The movie depicts the day when the opposing forces lay down their weapons and celebrated together.

The contrast between Christmas celebration and soldiers fighting in the trenches is a picture so strong and interesting that this alone warrants to watch this movie, the fact that it is also a pretty well made movie based on actual events saves this production from turning into a sappy onedimensional fantasy.
