Synopsis

Flanders tells the story of a group of young men, including local farmer Demester who go to fight in an unnamed war with brutal consequences. Juxtaposing rural images of their home village against the often savage and unrelenting landscape of war, the film charts familiar Dumont territory by offering a unique vision against a backdrop of an unconventional love story between Demester and his fragile sometime girlfriend Barbe.
