Joyeux Noël = Merry Christmas by Christian Carion( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in German and French and held by 1,359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This movie is inspired by a true story, which happened during the World War I, for Christmas Eve 1914, in many different places of the battlefront. When war breaks out in the lull of summer 1914, it surprises and pulls millions of men in its wake. And Christmas arrives, with its snow and multitude of family and army presents. But the surprise won't come from inside the generous parcels which lie in the French, Scottish, and German trenches. That night, a momentous event will turn the destinies of four characters: An Anglican priest, a French lieutenant, and exceptional tenor and the one he loves, a wonderful soprano and singing partner. During this Christmas Eve, the unthinkable will happen: rifles will be left at the bottom of the trenches to go to see those opposite, shake their hands, exchange a cigarette and a piece of chocolate, wish them 'Merry Christmas!'

"In this exquisitely calibrated film, Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay perform a subtly off-kilter pas de deux as Kate and Geoff, an English couple who, on the eve of an anniversary celebration, find their long marriage shaken by the arrival of a letter to Geoff that unceremoniously collapses his past into their shared present. Director Andrew Haigh carries the tradition of British realist cinema to artful new heights in 45 Years, weaving the momentous into the mundane as the pair go about their daily lives, while the evocatively flat, wintry Norfolk landscape frames their struggle to maintain an increasingly untenable status quo"--Container

Wade passed almost 30 years earlier. When 1215 fails to pass, Lee sets out to uncover what would make a self-proclaimed pro-life state vote against the very measure that would end most legal abortions.
