Capitaine Conan

Still image from the film Captain Conan
French Infantry Captain Conan and his men are stationed on the Macedonian Front during WWI. Their existence is brutal, heroic, and wild—raiding the enemy trenches with no more than bayonets and knives. Conan has only one real friend, a university student named Norbert. After the signing of the Armistice, Conan’s squad is sent to Bucharest to wait. Idle time is another enemy, and brutal men do brutal things. Norbert stays true to his convictions and conflict between friends becomes inevitable. In French and Romanian languages with English subtitles.
