Joyeux Noel -Merry Christmas- The Film


Last night, I watched Joyeux Noel, a film which was nominated for Best Foreign Language film at the 78th Academy Awards.
It was based on true stories of a Christmas Truce along the Western Front during World War 1.
They have a cease fire on Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day, the Officers have coffee together and "bury their dead".
This film centers mainly around six main characters, it is definitely worth viewing.
