A Very Long Engagement - Reaction

Set in WWI. About a woman tries to find her fiance, sentenced to the front lines for self-mutilation and afterward presumed dead.

Not good. Too long. The details are hard to follow and the story, while tender, isn't that enthralling. Few people beside the female protagonist care about her fiance's fate (or believe her when she claims he's still alive), so I as a viewer am not convinced I should. Nevertheless, with the confusing storyline, does a good job of demonstrating the chaos of war.

[I estimated the date I watched this movie.]
