Abstract

The 2005 film Joyeux Noël describes events on the Western Front on Christmas Day in 1914. After several months of trench warfare under difficult weather conditions, singing carols on Christmas Eve began a spontaneous truce known as the Christmas Truce, which included Christmas day itself. The analysis of the film traces the French-German conflicts, the possibility of joint action by Christian churches, and elements of interaction.

***

Film Joyeux Noël iz leta 2005 opisuje dogodke na zahodni fronti na božični dan leta 1914. Po nekaj mesecih težkih bitk v rovih in nadvse neprijetnih vremenskih razmerah se je s petjem na božični večer začelo spontano premirje, znano kot božični premirje, ki je vključevalo tudi božični dan. Analiza filma prepoznava francosko-nemške konflikte, možnosti skupnega delovanja krščanskih cerkva in elementov interakcije.
