The Guardians

Les gardiennes

Directed by Xavier Beauvois
France, Switzerland, 2017


The story opens in 1915, in a France that’s characterised more by agriculture than industry, where men have had to leave their homes to go and fight on the front line. Women, who have, up until now, been subordinate to their husbands, find themselves having to manage their farms all by themselves.
