The Guardians  (Les gardiennes)

During World War I, the women of the Paridier family farm, under the deft hand of Hortense, (Nathalie Baye - the family's matriarch), must grapple with the workload while the men, including two sons, are off at the front.  Hortense reluctantly brings in an outsider, the orphan Francine (Iris Bry), to help her daughter Solange (Laura Smet).

Acclaimed filmmaker Xavier Beauvois (Of Gods and Men) revels in the mysteries and beauties of the French countryside, here unravaged by war, with painterly images bathed in natural light, yet keeps his focus on this intricate drama as it plays out.
