Emotionally drained by his time in the trenches of World War I, poet Jean Diaz (Victor Francen) throws himself into study, searching for some technological means that will end the need for warfare. With his discoveries appropriated and squelched by profiteers anticipating another global conflict, he uses his findings to make his point to the world--to devastating and uncanny effect. Director Abel Gance’s fantasy-tinged revisitation of his 1918 pacifist opus also stars Line Noro, Jean-Max, André Nox. 95 min. Standard; Soundtrack: French Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English. In French with English subtitles.
