The CNC's advance on receipts for Les Gardiennes by Xavier Beauvois
Director Xavier Beauvois

Seven projects have been accepted during the first 2016 session of the CNC’s second advance on receipts committee. Standing out among them is Les Gardiennes by Xavier Beauvois, which will be produced by Sylvie Pialat for Les Films du Worso. Written by the director and Frédérique Moreau, the story is set in a village during World War I. The men have gone off to war, while the women have replaced them. Occasionally some men come back on leave, while others are declared to have "died for their country", and then the American soldiers also start to turn up... We follow the lives of a population of landowners, around their tools, their routines and the seasons that dictate the pace of their rustic lives, as well as their secrets… The cast may reportedly include Nathalie Baye and Laura Smet. This will be the seventh feature by Xavier Beauvois, following Nord (nominated for the César Award for Best Debut Film in 1993), Don’t Forget You’re Going to Die (Jury Prize at Cannes in 1995), According to Mathieu (in competition at Venice in 2000), The Young Lieutenant [+see also:
