What War May Bring

Over 10 years in production, Academy Award-winning director Claude Lelouch celebrates his 50th anniversary of film-making with What War May Bring, an epic World War II film, starring Dominique Pinon (Micmacs, Alien: Resurrection) and Jacky Ido (Inglourious Basterds).  It's an unforgettable journey with explosive action and dramatic battle sequences of the Normandy Landings which effectively convey the chaos of war.

The story is told through the eyes of two American soldiers and Ilva Lemoine (Audrey Dana), a beautiful and enigmatic woman who reflects on her turbulent life in war-torn Europe.  
As France struggles to cope with the German occupation and the battles across the continent get ever more bloody, Ilva betrays her resistance roots and becomes the mistress of a commanding Nazi officer, bringing about terrible consequences for those closest to her.
In the company of the liberating American troops Ilva begins to re-build her life but ultimately they must all face the hardest of decisions, with only honour and courage to save them.
Ilva's trials and tribulations of the war years and beyond touch on some of the key moments of 20th-century European history.  

It looks immense and is out in May.
