Joyeux Noel - movie night at Liberty Books
« on: December 21, 2010, 07:42:21 am »

FREE video night! Tuesday, 21 December, 2010

Be sure to tell friends who would enjoy this type of movie.

Joyeux Noel, a 2005 Cannes Film Festival winner

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, Scottish and German sides partake in the unique event, even though they are aware that their superiors will not tolerate its occurrence.

Be sure to bring your news and views on war/peace or anything else you think we ought to know about.

Please arrive at 6:30 if you can, in order to help set up the healthy snacks and beverages (that you bring to share with others - a box of tea for Jim's inventory would be appreciated) and enjoy the pre-screening networking. We'll start the video at 7 and have some discussion afterwards.

What a stunningly good movie - there wasn't a dry eye in the house at times. I highly recommend this movie to anyone - you won't look at war the same way ever again. I hope you can find it viewable online.
