Les Honneurs De La Guerre Details


An uneven, occasionally unconvincing wartime drama by director Jean Dewewer, this story is set at the very end of World War II when the American forces are about to enter a small French town. Some German soldiers have captured a group of resistance fighters and are keeping them prisoners in the local church. Knowing full well that the Americans will arrive any day, the Germans begin to consider their imminent surrender, accepting the inevitable. In the meantime, various Frenchmen decide they should liberate their compatriots imprisoned in the church -- and everything goes wrong. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
