The Guardians (Les Gardiennes) (2018)
Critic Consensus: The Guardians proves that the oft-unraveled canvas of World War I still has fresh stories to tell -- and adds another gorgeously filmed entry to Xavier Beauvois' filmography.

Critic Reviews for The Guardians (Les Gardiennes)
Like the cinematic equivalent of slow food, "The Guardians" is a rich, simmering cassoulet of a film, one that asks viewers to adjust their metabolisms accordingly.
Presents the dailiness of farm life through its seasons with an unhurried grace.
The performances are extraordinary, as they often are in Beauvois' films, with Baye a study in quiet suffering and Bry wonderfully enigmatic - seemingly simple, but hinting at a soul capable of expansion and adaptation.
Elegantly made and quietly emotional, a family story filled with characters whose lives we sink into, feeling the hope, the sadness, the sorrow and the joy right along with those on the screen.
Imagine devoting several years, as Mr. Beauvois did, to making a reflective, bucolic feature that is organized around the themes of community and evolving culture. It's all too subtle for words, but perfect for moving pictures.
