Film Club: A Very Long Engagement
Please note, this event has expired.
The film tells the story of a young woman’s relentless search for her fiancé, who has disappeared from the trenches of the Somme during World War One.
Mathilde (Tautou) is told that her fiancé (Ulliel) has been killed in World War I. She refuses to believe this, however, and begins trying to find out what actually happened on the battlefield the night he was supposedly killed, enlisting the help of a private investigator. During her search, she stumbles across evidence of the inhumane and morally bankrupt system used by the French to deal with deserters, and hears from other men who were sentenced to extreme punishment.
