Summary "As WWI draws to a close, Mathilde gets word that her fiancé Manech is one of five soldiers who wounded themselves to avoid the trenches; they have been court-martialled and pushed out into the no-man's land between the French and German armies to almost certain death. Unwilling to accept that her beloved Manech is dead, Mathilde embarks on an extraordinary journey to discover the fate of her lover. At each turn, she receives a different heartbreaking variation on how Manech must have spent those last days, but never loses hope. Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and stars Audrey Tatou, Gaspard Ulliel and Dominique Pinon. (In French, English subtitles)" -- SBS website
