The Christmas truce 1914 - Joyeux Noël film

I'm sure most of you have seen this advert already, based on the (most probably) true story of a very inofficial truce during the first world war, when on Christmas eve 1914 German and British troops sang Stille Nacht/Silent Night together. The next day they played football and exchanged gifts ...forgetting about the war for a day and finding a moment of true humanity.

There is a wonderful film about this magic moment in history, called 'Joyeux Noël'. It is perfect for the multi-linguists amongst you, as there are bits in English, German and French. Here is a trailer:
