Joyeux Noel — one Christmas Eve during World War I

Posted on: December 7, 2013

The year is 1914 and World War I has begun to rage across Europe. Rage is the only word for a war that would ultimately take 9 million lives. In one section of France, French and Scottish soldiers fight the Germans in trench warfare.

Suddenly, Christmas Eve is upon them and within their trench, a soldier begins to sing a Christmas song, then — a Scottish soldier plays the bagpipes.

The Murphy Library is showing a 2005 film from France, Joyeux Noel, about one Christmas Eve when soldiers put down their guns, this Thursday, December 12 at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Running time is 116 minutes and the film is rated PG-13. In English, French and German with English subtitles.
