The acclaimed film adaptation of Pierre Lemaitre's Au revoir là-haut, published in English as The Great Swindle

In November 1918, Edouard Pericourt, a gifted artist, saves the life of Albert Maillard, a humble bookkeeper. The two men have nothing in common apart from their experience of war and their hatred for Lieutenant Pradelle. On the ruins of the carnage of WWI, condemned to live, the two attempt to survive. Adapted from Pierre Lemaître’s Goncourt winning novel, "Au revoir là-haut", Albert Dupontel’s epic garnered five César awards including Best Director.
