We’ve had multiple requests for excellent drama set during the First World War in 1914. On Christmas Eve, numerous factions of battling front-line soldiers engage in an unauthorized truce. “Based on true events, this is a beautifully shot ensemble piece with a cast of brilliant actors who are each-profile in their native land… featuring Alex Ferns (Trevor of EastEnders) as the Scots officer Gordan, Guillaume Canet as Lt. Audebert and Daniel Bruhl as Sprink’s senior officer Horstmayer. As the truce continues and they form tentative, if ill-advised, friendships, each realizes how much harder war is when your enemy is no longer faceless… Bittersweet and moving, with a mordant humour throughout, Merry Christmas, for all its sentimentality, paints a picture of life on the front lines that has an emotional truth, if not gory grittiness.” Eye for Film
