EN - 100 years later, Front creates a wordless and tactile experience about the atrocities of World War I. The film depicts a young Belgian soldier stuck in the horror of the trenches. Overwhelmed by fear and physical exhaustion, he suffers from shellshock. He is out of control and tries to escape. At first, his friends protect him from certain death by restraining him. Eventually, they accept the inevitable.
