    • Synopsis
    • Volker Schlöndorff comes back with a drama film dealing with the « Hostage Question” paying a moving tribute to the French citizens who were shot dead during the Occupation. The film questions Death as it comes as a form of an administrative act when human beings are at stake, like puppets dangling on the strings of an inexorable machine. While the hostages refuse to wear a blindfold and that the rifleman are looking them right in the eyes, we can’t help getting deeply caught by the dreadful reality of wartime.
