In the closing days of World War I, Mathilde Donnay's greatest fight is about to begin as she goes in search of the man she loves, a man she has been told has died in A Very Long Engagement. If Manech were dead, Mathilde would know. Mathilde (Audrey Tautou--Amélie) receives word that her fiancé, Manech (Gaspard Ulliel), is one of five soldiers court-martialed for intentionally wounding themselves and pushed out to an almost-certain death in the no-man's land armies. Unwilling to accept that Manech is lost to her forever, Mathilde begins an extraordinary journey to discover the fate of her lover. At each turn, Mathilde encounters another, different, variation of how Manech must have spent his final days ... yet Mathilde never gives up and never let's go.

There's only so much candy the eye can consume before nausea sets in.

Beautiful WWI love story with gruesome battle scenes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this beautifully rendered story of romantic love set in France in the years during and after World War I pulls no punches in showing the death and destruction of trench warfare. The gruesome battle and murder scenes will be difficult for some viewers. Also, as this is ultimately -- above the layers of war and mystery -- a romance, there are brief sexual situations without nudity throughout the film as well.
