LIFE AND NOTHING BUT
LA VIE ET RIEN D'AUTRE
1989, MGM Repertory, 135 min, Dir: Bertrand Tavernier

At the end of World War I, the aging Major Dellaplane (Philippe Noiret) has been given the soul-numbing job of matching 350,000 missing French soldiers with their families' descriptions. When haughty Parisian Irene (Sabine Azema) arrives searching for her missing husband, the two strike up an unusual, increasingly tender relationship in the midst of the bleakest of aftermaths. In French with English subtitles.
