"Set near the end of the bloody Indo-Chinese War in which the Vietnamese struggled to shuck off the yoke of French colonialism, this taut, provocative French war drama chronicles the events leading up to the slaughter of the French army's 317th Platoon, a unit comprised of 41 Laotians and a quartet of French officers that was ordered to make it back to the safety of camp Dien Bien Phu. It is an arduous journey and the soldiers must not only battle constant ambushes, but also the jungle itself. Many soldiers die along the way. When they finally make it to the camp, they find the enemy waiting. Not one member of the platoon survives the ensuing slaughter."--Sandra Brennan, Rovi as seen on http://movies.nytimes.com
La 317ème section The 317th Platoon ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1990 in French and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On May 3rd 1954, as the battle of Dien Bien Phu is reaching its end, the 317th Platoon of auxiliary Laotian soldiers receive the order to retreat. The platoon is formed of four French and 41 Laotians under their command. The order is to reach the entrenched camp of Dien Bien Phu ; 8 days later, the platoon will be destroyed, Dien Bien Phu will have fallen. Schoendoerffer follows the men through the jungle as they are slowly annihilated in ambushes, in attacks, and by diseases. He captures the inarticulate anguish and solitude of each man trying to survive and of two in particular - a veteran sargeant to whom battle is a way of life, - and a young French officer fresh from military school. Their impersonal, hierarchical and rather hostile relationship becomes an unlikely friendship
