Streaming Video - 2014
Rate this:
A French schoolboy (14 years old) is full of patriotic enthusiasm at the start of the war. Pretending to be of age and against the will of his parents, he signs up. His romantic dreams of honour and adventure soon give way to disillusionment with modern warfare. During the Battle of the Ardennes, he panics and flees from his unit - only to be captured again shortly afterwards. THEME: Passion is stronger than reason. When everyone is gripped by the war, it is hard to keep a cool head - even when your own life is at stake. RELEVANCE: Even though the First World War started with patriotism, honour and devotion, it was soon conducted with total disdain for human life. Nowadays everything is done to ensure that the soldiers are brought home safe and well.
