In this unexpectedIt wasn't like this plot summary was totally false, it was just misleading a bit. I actually found the last twenty minutes of the movie to be the most interesting and the first hour could have been cut or summarized. In fact, the ending was not just disturbing but that it was an expression of someone's psychological state using the time period involved in such a manner at the time it was produced (the late 1970s). Unless you're really into watching every gay movie ever made or are into period pieces about World War II Europe, this may be one to skip.
and often touching lovestory set against the backdrop of World War II, a kindheartedmentally ill, mentally retarded or Autistic French peasant saves the life of an injured German soldier and spends the bulk of the movie prancing about the French countryside vacillating between calling him "Murderer" and treating him like his best friend. He is ultimately surprised when he develops feelingsa full blown mental crisis of life and death epic proportions for a man he thought was his enemy. What emerges from director Philippe Vallois's moody and romanticcharacter study ishas been described by some as a questioning of the arbitrary borders that separate us, rendered meaningless in the face of true love.
