La France Réalisé par Serge Bozon
While soldiers singing together is nothing unusual, the musical sequences here are strikingly strange: when the men take out their quaintly handmade instruments, they launch into songs (written for the movie by Fugu and Benjamin Esdraffo, with lyrics by the director) in the jaunty mode of 1960s Sunshine Pop, which are not only jarringly anachronistic but out of key with the melancholy, somber mood of the film.

These lost soldiers are perhaps the most delicate souls to don uniforms and carry guns in movie history. They are united in a profound state of loneliness, which they express in a series of unexpected 60s-style pop tunes. The musical numbers are totally anachronistic, but they fit the film’s lyrical mood and lift it well beyond the realm of realism.

Amid this stark, deadly landscape, the musical numbers come as a surprise. They’re quaint, rambling affairs, with the soldiers using whatever instruments they have on hand to create sudden bursts of crudely beautiful folk-pop songs, which double as an assertion of raw humanity in the midst of a world gone mad.
