In a derailed future version of France, democracy is a thing of the past. But there are still some rebels left, fighting against the regime. The latter’s high society indulges in a fashion show in the halls of the Louvre, celebrating the grande nation in the style of super-sexy military chic. The rebels attack the decadent spectacle. The painting Liberty Leading the People by Eugène Delacroix hovers above the scene, bathed in pink light. In this visually stunning piece the French-Austrian collective serves up all the most ingenious artistic means it has at its disposal. But contrary to what one might think, it does not settle the score with France in Vive l’Armee but rather with a dangerous worldwide development that promotes an armed “continuation of politics by other means” as a workable option once more with increasing vehemence. Superamas counters this with a rousing anti-war thriller, incorporating documentary material from projects with young people and references to Stanley Kubrick’s film Path of Glory.
