At the end of WWI France maintained an infantry unit in the Balkans for a year to contain the Russian Revolution. Led by Philippe Torreton, the soldiers aren’t quite sure if they are belligerents or peace keepers. Tavernier examines what it means to be a true soldier: brave, foolhardy, and loyal in an uncertain military situation.
