Synopsis

★★★★ – Les Gardiennes, The Guardian

The director of 2010’s multi award-winning Of Gods and Men returns with this soulful and engrossing account of a mother and daughter in 1915, left to manage the family farm in rural France after their men are sent to the front line.

Hiring 20-year-old orphan Francine to help with the work, the women toil tirelessly, their lives marked by heartache, the changing seasons, and their men’s rare visits while on leave. A fitting tribute to the oft-forgotten unsung female heroes of the home front.

Showing in partnership with the Leicester French Circle, they join us for the 7.30pm screening on Thu 20 Sep - come along to find out more about their activities.
