Almost simultaneously in the European cinema, there were two similar to the film adaptation of time of the great war of 1914-1918, where the main theme through the narrative is the theme "Girl and earth". In the UK, Terence Davies filmed novel of Lewis Grassie Gibbon's "sunset Song" (1932), in France Xavier Beauvois filmed novel Ernest Persona "the guardian" (1924).

The great war of 1914-1918 by the majority of historians and researchers recognizes the key focal event of the change of epochs. Peasant Patriarchal Europe fades in past is substituted with industrial society, in which the earth, seasons, seasonal labour, the man does not have that most important cornerstone values as previously. The great war invaded life, the agricultural way of life a symbolic taking away of men with agricultural fields, on battlefields and battles.

The film "the guardian" takes place in the farm Pride with 1914 1919 years. Farm owner Hortense (another talented actor Natalie Bay) remained on the farm together with her daughter Solange (played daughter Natalie Bay Laura Smet), where the war took men: of the sons of Hortense and her husband Solange. Hortense hires on the work of a young girl Francine (convincing acting, aspiring actress iris bree), the main character of the story.

The way Francine is very easy to see the symbolic image of France and agricultural. Francine devout as simple-minded Catholic-farmer, hardworking, humble, caring and full of strength, able to love fertility.

The authors of the film with love to recreate on the screen the life of the France of those years. The camera and lovingly gazes at time-consuming occupations of the characters in the movie and depicts the beautiful scenery of different seasons.

The war is over the frame. It deadly breath is almost comes to life in the rear. Almost. But when still, apply, pain the loss is almost unbearable.

The final film is open and optimistic. The war behind the front life. Life once again took over the madness of mankind and gives man hope for the future. (But will it last?)

My opinion — good.
