Now a major French film Au revoir la-haut - Prix Goncourt-winning masterpiece by the writer who brought you Alex, Irene and Camille.

And so is set in motion a series of devastating events that will inextricably bind together the fates and fortunes of Pradelle and the two soldiers who witness his crime: Albert Maillard and douard P ricourt.Back in civilian life, Albert and douard struggle to adjust to a society whose reverence for its dead cannot quite match its resentment for those who survived. But the two soldiers conspire to enact an audacious form of revenge against the country that abandoned them to penury and despair, with a scheme to swindle the whole of France on an epic scale.Meanwhile, believing her brother killed in action, douard's sister Madeleine has married Pradelle, who is running a little scam of his own.
