# 04 : Old school but new star (vhs)
27 June 2018 | by lamegabyteSee all my reviews

It's the 1st big movie of Géraldine and while she shows all her skin in a sweet night shower, she definitely wins over by her voice, her punch and her good manners so she is indeed a memorable young nurse! Set during the WWII, this movie is more about the romances than a war movie and the action scenes are a bit dull... But the scope is interesting and it has a really moving scene with the wonderful Minuit Chretien played in the church for Christmas! If you love Pearl Harbor and When we were Kings, this french try should appeal to you!
