Pour Sacha (English title: For Sacha) is a 1991 French romantic drama film directed by Alexandre Arcady and starring Sophie Marceau, Gérard Darmon, and Ayelet Zurer. The film is set just prior to the outbreak of the Six-Day War in 1967.


Sacha and Laura, who have been living in a kibbutz in Israel near the Syrian border for two years, are visited by three friends from Paris—Simon, Michel, and Paul—who have come to celebrate Laura's twentieth birthday. One of the friends, Simon, is obsessed by the death of the girl he loved. During the birthday celebration, he tries to find amongst his friends someone to blame for his love's death. Laura is the only one who knows that the young girl died of a broken heart. She also loved Sacha. The film ends as war is declared in Israel.[1]
