After the outbreak of World War I, the women of the Paridier farm in provincial France must protect the homestead in the absence of their husbands, sons and employees. Family matriarch Hortense (Natalie Baye) reluctantly brings o a hard-scrabble orphan, Francine (Iris Bry), tonassist her daughter Solange (Laura Smet) and sustain the farm. New tools allow the women to triumph over the land, but old jealousies persist, especially when the men return from the front. A rough-hewn tribute to a generation of women who persisted.

"The performances are extraordinary, as they often are in Beauvois’ films, with Baye a study in quiet suffering and Bry wonderfully enigmatic — seemingly simple, but hinting at a soul capable of expansion and adaptation."
Mick LaSalle - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

"THE GUARDIANS, though, is special in a new way. Imagine devoting several years, as Mr. Beauvois did, to making a reflective, bucolic feature that is organized around the themes of community and evolving culture. It’s all too subtle for words, but perfect for moving pictures."
Joe Morgenstern - WALL STREET JOURNAL

"THE GUARDIANS is an intimate French epic, elegantly made and quietly emotional, a family story filled with characters whose lives we sink into, feeling the hope, the sadness, the sorrow and the joy right along with those on the screen."
Kenneth Turan - LOS ANGELES TIMES
