Synopsis:
Inspired by a true story which occurred in the trenches of the World War I battlefield on Christmas Eve in 1914, "Joyeux Noel" is a moving story of dignity and human kindness set against the savagery of war. That night, a momentous event changed the lives of four characters: an Anglican priest, a French lieutenant, an exceptional German tenor and the one he loves, his singing partner.
During this Christmas Eve, the unthinkable happened: calling him a brief but meaningful ceasefire, soldiers emerged from their trenches to exchange gifts, play football and celebrate Christmas together, as well as being allowed to bury their respective dead who had fallen between opposing lines in No Man's Land... The Academy Award nominated (2006, Best Foreign Language Film) "Joyeux Noel" offers a thought-provoking and compelling view of one of the most poignant and forgotten events in history.
