My favourite actress narrates the English version of this. The film consists of numerous interviews with Parisians during the month of May 1962 which was a pivotal moment in French history as it was the first time in many decades that France was at peace. There was a cease fire with Algeria and De Gaulle had said that if Algerians wanted independence it was their choice and so Algeria was on the verge of said. There were references to recent events such as the massacre of 8 protestors during a protest on Feb. 8th, 1962 and a procession marking the anniversary of the death of Joan of Arc but primarily ordinary citizens were interviewed. What gets me the most is that in all the interviews with so many Parisians so few saw beyond the end of their noses and less cared. With peace came the prospect of using war dollars for social programs and thus a hope for a better future for all where poverty would be eradicated and so on.
