 by Joachim LafosseDes hommes explores the wall of silence surrounding the so-called “years of lead” that the Algerian War represented for France and its people. In it, we follow several former soldiers who were deployed on the front line for two years, and who, ever since their return to France, have stayed quiet about their experience. Forty years later, their past catches up with them, and they will have to confront this particular chapter in world history and their own life stories.
