Nominated for best foreign language film at the 74th Academy Awards, Joyeux Noël (Merry Christmas), directed by Christian Carion, depicts the remarkable true events of December 1914, when soldiers from both sides laid down their weapons and met in the middle of no-man’s land to celebrate Christmas together. After this pseudo truce, they returned to killing each other, and the film delves deep into the tragic irony of this event as a larger reflection of the four-year ordeal of the First World War.
