4.0 out of 5 stars "O Come All Ye Faithful" 30 Nov 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
French, Scottish and German soldiers come together to celebrate Christmas in the trenches of World War 1 in a profoundly moving film about the humanist in all of us. It is music that draws these disparate enemies together on one cold and dark wintry night in 1914 when an unforeseen harmony between soldiers from three countries suddenly becomes one.

With a cast of Scottish, German and French actors all speaking their own language, writer-director Christian Carion has fashioned a deeply moving and uplifting piece. The film begins as one of the German soldiers Nikolaus Sprink (Benno Furmann), a famous tenor in civilian life, leaves the battle lines briefly to rejoin his lover and stage partner, soprano Anna Sorensen (Diane Kruger), for a small command performance away from the Western front.

Because their time together is so short, she insists on accompanying him back to the trenches; there, the two stage a concert for the German troops. What happens then is simple, beautiful, and believably spontaneous. In the midst of the concert, the bagpipes of the Scottish regiments join the couple across the divide.

As Sprink places Christmas trees onto the field, the three commanders, the French Audebert (Guillaume Canet), the German-Jewish Horstmayer (Daniel Bruhl) and the Scottish Gordon (Alex Ferns) meet and declare the truce that spreads to Christmas Day and includes a deeply moving service in Latin said by Rev. Palmer, an Anglican priest turned soldier (Gary Lewis).

Tired and battle-weary these soldiers who slaughtered each other from trenches put down their weapons to share wine and food, exchange photographs of their loved ones and memories, and even find time to play a game of soccer in the snow.

5.0 out of 5 stars A WORLD WAR I CHRISTMAS DRAMA 29 Nov 2013
By Trajan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Calix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker
A fitting film for the festive season, based on a certain amount of fact, beautifully produced and well acted. We can all thank our lucky stars we were not there, if you watch this over the Christmas, spare a moment's thought for both Allied and German soldiers who fought a needless horrendous war. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enter the Christmas spirit 17 Nov 2006
Format:DVD
This movie a French-English-German language effort telling the story of true events that happened over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day 1914 when the troops from these three countries stopped their hostilites and engaged in some good old fashioned human camaradarie is a well told and sweet movie that deserves to join the ranks of movie that warm even the coldest of hearts over the Christmas period.

Based on true events the movie starts with children fromn the 3 countries spouting propaganda that was said at the time and then leads into the stories of the various characters that are the main protaganists.On the German side you have an opera singer who joins up at as a private and his girlfriend who gets to see him by organising a concert for the brass afterwards he returns to the men as he has to sing for them,this starts the thawing of hositility and all three sets of soldiers are soon singing and carousing.

The next day the thaw continues as the soldiers bury their dead and the famous football match happens .

The ending is more downbeat the commanders of all three countries find out what happens and the soldiers from all the nations involved are transferred or their regiments are broken up.One shock is the speech made by the Bishop to the Scottish lads which is incredibly viscous but an actual true speech made in Westminster Abbey in 1915 .Good movie well made and well worth watching.,

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas & War, Who wins? 24 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Life in the trenches at Christmas is poignantly brought to life.
Yet this is a Christmas like no other, it's 1914 and strange things
are going on at certain places along the front.

As the different nationalities come together the story is so good
even the odd subtitle doesn't get in the way. Excellent viewing!
