A Very Long Engagement
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 lets go.
