Joyeux Noël DVD - 2005 film directed by Christian Carion. On Christmas Eve during World War I, the Germans, French, and Scottish are trying to make peace, so they bury their dead and play football. In 1914, World War I, the bloodiest war ever at that time in human history, was well under way. However on Christmas Eve, numerous sections of the Western Front called an informal, and unauthorized, truce where the various front-line soldiers of the conflict peacefully met each other in No Man's Land to share a precious pause in the carnage with a fleeting brotherhood. This film dramatizes one such section as the French, British and German sides partake in the unique event, even though they are aware that their superiors will not tolerate its occurrence. Stars Diane Kruger, Benno Fürmann, Guillaume Canet, Dany Boon and Gary Lewis. Audio in French, German and English - and subtitles in English, Spanish or Portuguese. Rated PG-13 for some war violence and a brief scene of sexuality/nudity. 116 minutes.
