Un long dimanche de fiancailles (A very long engagement)
Un long dimanche de fiancailles is a French movie, directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, starring Audrey Tautou.
The story deals about five men who shoot themselves to get away from the Frontline at Somme during the First World War. The are being court-martialed and as a punishment they will be left for dead in no man's land. Mathilde (Audrey Tautou) is the fiancé of Manech, who is one of these five men, he is called Manech. She finds out maybe her husband is still alive. So a great investigation begins, it's almost like a detective in WW1. It's also a very beautiful love story about two young people who only live for eachother.
I think this movie is very, very good! Audrey Tautou plays very strong and convincing. The story gets you immediately, though the plot can be a little difficult to understand sometimes.
The colour of this movie is brilliant, with often yellow-brown filmshots which fits perfectly to this film.
