Full US Trailer for 'Come What May' with a Score by Ennio Morricone

"The only way to keep our grip is to return to where we belong." Cohen Media recently released this French film in US theaters (starting in NYC), titled Come What May, from director Christian Carion. Set in 1940 at the beginning of World War II, the film is about various people from small village in northern France who had to escape when the Germans invaded. It focuses primarily on two of them: Hans, seeking to recover his son who fled the village, and Percy, hoping to reach the sea, and find a boat back to England. Surprisingly, the film features an original score by Ennio Morricone, one of the few original scores he's written recently besides The Hateful Eight. The full cast includes Alice Isaaz, August Diehl, Mathilde Seigner, Olivier Gourmet and Matthew Rhys. This looks like it's a damn good WWII drama, I might have to check it out.

Here's the official US trailer (+ a poster) for Christian Carion's Come What May, direct from YouTube:

Come What May Poster

May 1940. To escape the imminent German invasion, the inhabitants of a small village in northern France flee their homes, like so many millions of their compatriots. Max, a German boy, travels with them. His father, Hans, opposed the Nazi regime and was imprisoned in Arras for having lied about his nationality. Hans is eventually set free and sets off to find his son, accompanied by a Scottish soldier who is trying to get back home. Come What May (or En mai, fais ce qu'il te plaƮt originally) is directed by French filmmaker Christian Carion, of the films The Girl from Paris, Joyeux Noel and Farewell previously. The screenplay is written by Andrew Bampfield, Christian Carion and Laure Irrmann. The film premiered in France last year, and it also played at the Montclair and Seattle Film Festivals this year. Cohen Media Group already released Come What May in select theaters starting on September 9th. Theater listings here. Interested?
