WILD STRAWBERRIES: JOYEUX NOËL

Director: Christian Carion

116 minutes, France-Germany-UK-Belgium-Romania-Norway, 2005, Drama/Music/History, English subtitles


Wild Strawberries is our bi-monthly film club for over 55s.

 A timely revisiting of this moving and evocative World War One drama, set in the treacherous, hand-dug trenches, from which the bloodiest of battles took place. On Christmas Eve 1914, in defiance of their superiors, a number of German, Scots and French break off from fighting to first sing, then play a game of football in No-Mans-Land. Although the aftermath is also clear, for a brief moment hostilities are suspended. The three armies join together in a willingess to step away from the carnage and rejoice in one another’s humanity.

€3.85 incl regular tea/coffee before the screening.

Also screening as part of Wild Strawberries is The Shop Around the Corner on December 19th at 11.00.

This is screening as part of IFI Festive Favourites, our season of family favourites and classics in December.
