Pierre Schoendoerffer – La 317eme section AKA The 317th Platoon (1965)


‘In 1954, at the height of the Indochina War, a French platoon comprising four French soldiers and around forty Laotians is instructed to abandon Luong Ba, an outpost on the border with Laos, and relieve Lao Tsaï, a town 150 kilometres to the south. The platoon is led by the young lieutenant Torrens and his adjutant, Willsdorff, who served in the German army during the Second World War. The expedition will last eight days and will end in dismal failure. Amid the setbacks and personal traumas, Torrens and Willsdorff form a close friendship and learn something about themselves…’
