A Very Long Engagement
Source: Catholic News Service
Bittersweet World War I drama about a crippled French woman (Audrey Tautou) who embarks on a quest to find out the battlefield fate of her betrothed (Gaspard Ulliel) who, along with four other soldiers, was said to have been killed under mysterious circumstances on the front lines. Part romantic tear-jerker, part mystery, part gritty war movie, the film reunites director Jean-Pierre Jeunet with his "Amelie" leading lady, Tautou, and combines an emotionally engaging story with mesmerizing visuals, resulting in a poignant parable about the absurdity of war and the power of love. Subtitles. Graphic warfare violence, including gory dismemberment and self-mutilation, several murders, an execution, a few sexual encounters, some nudity and an instance of masturbation. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
