This eleventh feature film by Lucas Belvaux, is an adaptation of Laurent Mauvignier's eponymous novel. The story of veterans of the Algerian war whose past comes back to haunt them forty years later. Set in a small village where everyone knows each other, the film captures the leaden blanket of silence that fell on France after the "war that shall not be named", in a flashback narration guided by the memory of Gérard Depardieu, Catherine Frot and Jean-Pierre Darroussin.
