Diane Kruger hot scene in Merry Christmas
Beautiful Diane Kruger in Merry Christmas (Joyeux Noël)
On Christmas Eve 1914 in Northern France, officers and soldiers from Scotland, Germany and France, who fought each other from trenches barely 100 metres apart on a daily basis, put down their weapons to share wine and food, exchange photographs and memories and play a game of soccer in the snow. It was an extraordinary act of human generosity and humility – and a true event.
The story follows a Scottish Anglican priest, who volunteered to follow his young church aides; a prestigious Berlin tenor now fighting for his country, and the French Lieutenant Audebert, who has had to leave his pregnant wife behind. These men and their peers easily find a common ground that is dangerously subversive to their superiors.
A bona-fide hit of the 2005 Cannes Film Festival, Merry Christmas (Joyeux Noël) is a heart-warming story about courage and dignity. Anchored by an excellent international cast this deeply moving and uplifting film features scenes of great bravery, simple decency and extraordinary humour. With a genuine poignancy in its celebration of the way a shared humanity transcended the madness of war, this elegant film is a European classic.
