I watched this 2005 French movie with a few others at the Brunswick Library Tuesday night. Joyeux No�el is based on the true story of the 1914 Christmas Truce. It is in English, French and German, with English subtitles. It is heart-wrenching, often funny, and ultimately a story of hope and humanity amidst the ludicrous horors of war. It's not your usual holiday fare, but it can certainly make for a thoughtful evening. The theme of the holidays during wartime is certainly timely. Merry Christmas.
