From the director of Of Gods and Men, Xavier Beauois, this painterly WWI period piece focuses on the women left at home while the men are at the front. Matriarch Hortense (Nathalie Baye) takes responsibility for keeping the family farm running, with the help of her daughter Solange (Laura Smet) and Francine (Iris Bry), a teenage orphan she hires on.
«Beauvois opens up this isolated world with stirring emotional force.» Manohla Dargis, New York Times
