Details
They were called to Algeria during the “events” of 1960. Two years later, Bernard, Rabut, Février and others returned to France. They kept silent and live their lives. But sometimes it takes almost nothing, a birthday, a gift in one’s pocket, to bring the past charging back, forty years later, into the lives of those who believed they could deny it.

Director's Statement

It’s a film about the wounds of war rather than the war itself.

It’s a film about our memories, experiences and scars. For those who returned, the war never ended because it was never recognised or even considered to be a war. (…) our characters have only seen what they have experienced. In other words, just fragments and moments in time. They did what they thought was their duty and only later realised they had been nothing but cogs in a terrifying machine. Without necessarily having the words to talk about it and without feeling sure they would be heard or understood. They often say those who served in Algeria didn’t recount their experiences, but I think it was more that nobody wanted to listen to them.
