The story set in 1919. Mathilde (Creator/AudreyTautou) was engaged to her childhood sweetheart Manech (Gaspard Ulliel) when he was enlisted to fight in [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI the Great War.]] Manech tried to get excused from duty by getting his hand shot, but he was instead convicted of self-mutilation and left to die with four other soldiers in the no-man's land between the French and German trenches. Mathilde, however, refuses to believe that Manech is dead, and sets out on an investigation to find him. Along the way, she meets people who are also connected to the five condemned soldiers, including vengeful prostitute Tina Lombardi (MarionCotillard), and learns their stories.

* DistaffCounterpart: Tina Lombardi to Mathilde. Whilst Mathilde goes about finding out about the circumstances of her lover's death by wit and guile, Tina does the same thing by seduction and violence.



* FakeNationality:
** Creator/JodieFoster as (Polish-born) Élodie Gordes. She speaks French perfectly though.
** One of the French officers is played by a Belgian actor who could not fully disguise his Walloon accent.



* {{Foil}}: Tina Lombardi to Mathilde. Whilst Mathilde goes about finding out about the circumstances of her lover's death by wit and guile, Tina does the same thing by seduction and violence.

* ShellShockedVeteran: Given that it's a film set in the trenches, we see a lot of these, but most explicitly Manech who loses his grip on reality after a few too many close calls.
