Sunday 24th February – A Very Long Engagement (2004)
Dir: Jean-Pierre Jenuet, 133 min
Rated: MA, children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult
Bringing the distinct visual style and almost magic realism of Amelie to the Western Front, this film is equal parts beautiful and brutal. Following the story of Mathilde as she looks for her lost love in the fragmented stories and lives left in the aftermath of the Great War, this movie takes its audience on a bittersweet and moving journey.
