The Guardians is another excellent movie brought to us by Xavier Beauvois who previously directed Of Gods and Men. The Guardians takes place in France in 1915 with WW I raging. The young men are in the army fighting leaving the wives, mothers, sisters, daughters and older men to tend to the farms.

This is an excellent movie with a very good story, well acted nd nice scenes of the French countryside. The audio is in French with English subtitles. The running time is 135 minutes. R rated with some sex very little nudity.
