Picture

On 9th September 1944, ten inhabitants of Marcourt were burnt alive by the Nazis as a reprisal against local Resistance fighters. For 47 years, the families of the victims have had a grudge against the ancient Resistance fighters. The film relates the story inside the History, the history in the past and in the present time, how the village lives nowadays in the memory of the tragedy, torn apart by a wall dividing the clan of pro-Resistance and that of anti-Resistance. Within the confined space of the village, both camps settle scores with each other, Germany, the nazi barbarity, it lies too far away. Rooted to the spot with distress, they stand all there, as if it was still yesterday, on wooden benches, in the sunset light, stuck between the thick walls of the memorial chapel and the cemetery, naging their wings against the ghosts of the past. As the last witnesses of a village in the Belgian Ardennes which is dwindling away, they will always remember and they will never forgive.
