Pierre has been married for 15 years and has two kids.  He still loves his wife and is fulfilled in his role as father.  Overall, he's a contented man.  Until one evening, he meets Elsa.  They chat, laugh, and joke around in a way that doesn't happen every day.

Two weeks later, they run into each other again by chance.  The same easy mutual attraction they felt for one another is just as strong, and they tell each other as much.  A line has been crossed.  But Elsa has a golden rule never to get involved with married men, and Pierre wants to remain faithful.  They go their separate ways, without swapping phone numbers, preferring to let life take its own course.

As the line blurs between how they imagine their relationship and what has actually happened, their fantasies start to merge with reality.

"Fahrenheit 9/11" est le nouveau film coup de poing de Michael Moore oscarisé pour son documentaire "Bowling for Columbine".  Une fois encore il use de son humour incisif et de son entêtement légendaire, pour se lancer dans une enquète féroce sur la politique du gouvernement Bush.  Images rares et témoignages d'experts s'entremêlent à la quête obsinée du réalisateur "dont la force est de nous faire rire devant la folie du monde, avant de nous laisser en larmes devant la peur". – Studio

It's 1941, the war on the Russian front is expanding, and the Germans are less patient than they were last year.  There is real pressure on to expose the French resistance, and the local group plan some assassinations in Villeneuve.  But in the planning, Marcel's new girlfriend is captured, and Marcel is involved in an unplanned murder of a German officer.  Tensions ratchet up.

Hortense is involved in a steamy affair with the local German commander.  Lucienne has become pregnant to a German soldier.  The tensions and the passions in the village are on the rise, and still, the villagers' sense of trust in each other is being challenged by the dreadful occupation.  It's gripping drama all the way.

No wonder the New York Times says:
"It's a subtle, historically accurate but not unsympathetic look at ordinary people suddenly tested by war, defeat and enemy invasion."
