Red Collar, The: Jean Becker WWI Drama

Jean Becker’s drama The Red Collar opens UniFrance’s Rendez-vous with French Cinema in Paris, running January 18 to 22.

Nicolas Duvauchelle stars as a decorated army officer who falls from grace after he desecrates his medals in a protest against the absurdity of war; Francois Cluzet plays the interrogating judge.

It is the 15th feature from Becker, who is 84, after mainstream dramas, Welcome Aboard (2012) and Get Well Soon (2014).

The release of The Red Collar in 2018 marks the centenary of the end of WWI.
