Hvordan var ægte-til-livet 'Joyeux Noel'?

10

Så, nogle år tilbage, husker jeg at se en helt vidunderlig film kaldet Joyeux Noel, , som tilsyneladende er baseret på faktiske begivenheder under Første Verdenskrig (Named Christmas Truce of 1914). Jeg ved, at forskellige specifikke elementer i det mindste er løst baseret på virkelighedsbegivenheder (f.eks. I DVD-extras taler de om, hvordan nogle soldater rent faktisk brugte en kat til at sende beskeder til den modsatte hær - og katten var faktisk hang for forræderi, selvom de besluttede at forlade den sidste bit ud); men jeg fik den forstand at filmen ...

  • Formentlig blandede mange anekdoter fra forskellige områder af kamp og kondenserede dem kun til et område for at skabe en mere sammenhængende historie, og
  • Løst baserede historien og de enkelte øjeblikke på anekdoter, men brugte helt fiktive figurer (og gjorde en masse formodninger om historiespecifikationer).
  • Er der nogen, der ved, hvor præcist dette indtryk er og / eller generelt hvor præcist filmen var, hvad der skete i det virkelige liv? (fx Hvor meget af specifikationerne var formodning / fiktionalisering? Var nogle af de enkelte tegn faktisk rigtige mennesker, eller var de næsten helt fiktive? Etc.)

    Der er en god artikel om dette

    Der er meget interessante fakta om dette:

    Perhaps the biggest misconception about the Christmas Truce of 1914 is that it was limited to the days around Christmas. In fact, fraternization had often occurred in war; it wasn’t all that uncommon for soldiers who had been shooting at one another one day to wave a white flag to exchange food or drink the next. While largely discouraged, such activities happened all the time, even under the threat of serious punishment.

    Om fodboldkampen:

    “The evidence for football being played is from letters and various other paperwork from individual soldiers,” added Baker. “It gets no mention in unit war diaries, regimental histories etc and indeed some men wrote that they simply did not believe that it had taken place.

    “The circumstances of the cratered nature of the ground, presence of barbed wire defenses and so on, plus the very short time over which fraternization occurred, make it most improbable that we are talking about a properly organized game,” Baker suggested. “A kick-about is probably nearer the mark. The only place where even two British reports mention football was on the front of 15th Infantry Brigade, but no corroborating German evidence from that sector has been found.”

    Og nogle faktiske fejl er angivet her :

    A very common error in First World War films. British soldiers were not permitted to shave their upper lips until 1916 - in 1914 almost all (unless physically unable to grow them) would have had moustaches.

    In the scene right after the couple sings, they mention that they first met five years ago, in Oslo, Norway. However the city had been known as Christiania since 1624, and was only changed to Oslo in 1924, after the time period of this movie.
