  • Involuntary voyeurFrance, 1944. Julien Sarlat made his escape from military service, and now, through a series of uncanny circumstances, is believed dead. Not many people can say they've attended their own funeral. Julien has. He's now left with no choice but to hide himself away in his home village of Cambeyrac, where only his aunt is aware of his survival. He spends his days gazing down longingly on the life from which he is excluded. That is, until the lovely Cécile, his childhood sweetheart, finds him curled up in her barn...

  • June 1943. Julien Sarlat jumps from the train transporting him to Germany and manages to get back to his small village in the Aveyron, Cambeyrac, where he hides, without the villagers' knowledge, to await the end of the hostilities. In a strange turn of fate, the train that he was on is bombed, and one of the corpses is identified as his. In the eyes of society, he is now dead. Taking advantage of this unexpected situation, he hides away in the attic of his old school teacher, who was arrested by the French Gestapo for suspected communist leanings. From that moment on Julien, from his observatory overlooking the village square, is the spectator of this everyday theater of ordinary people going about their business. Love, hatred, envy, cowardice, passion and heroism: the onlooker sees the most.
