Allons z'enfants

A Feature film by Yves Boisset

Produced by Sara Films

Release in France : 04/03/1981

    Synopsis

    France, the 1930s. Simon Chalumet (Lucas Belvaux), 15 years old, is sent to a military school by his overbearing father, an ex-soldier who has little sympathy for his son's more gentle temperament, or for his interest in films. In spite of various forms of harassment meant to whip the young men into shape, Simon does survive the years of harsh treatment with his own interests and basic nature unscathed. Reality intrudes in the end, when Simon is sent to the front and faces war and combat for the first time.
