I discovered a movie that moved me quite unexpectedly this year. I'm a huge fan of films "based on a true story", but the story behind this one is on a par with Apollo 13 or Shackleton for being nearly impossible to make up. Do yourself a favor and rent Joyeux Noel, but do a little research before viewing it. You'll get more out of it. Google the movie. Then Google the events depicted. It's hard to believe something like this really happened.

I used this film in two of my courses this year (Sociology and Psychology), and both classes took more notes than they ever did during my lectures. :rolleyes:

BTW, the soundtrack for the film is good enough to raise goose-bumps. Here's a link to an original piece from the film. A song sung in English with a French title that's played on bagpipes in the movie. I want the music for it.

Hymne des Fraternises (AKA Forever, I\'m Dreaming Of Home)

I'm going to give it a look Patch. I was reading about this in a WWI history book. Descriptions of that war are unbelievably gruesome - the number of dead, the battlefield conditions.
