French war propaganda in the form of a family drama in the German government. Nationalist sentiments severely test the young marriage between a French and a German. Directed by Henri Pouctal. One might loosely say a Romeo and Juliet type story

Alsace is one of Pouctal’s propagandist war films and, with a majestic performance by Gabrielle Réjanne, recreating the part she had played on the stage.
