S'appuyant sur le titre d'un article célèbre d'Emile Zola pour la défense de Dreyfus, J'accuse est une oeuvre majeure d'Abel Gance dénonçant la guerre, en se servant pour fil conducteur de la vie et de la mort d'un ancien poilu devenu pacifiste convaincu.

In a Provençal village in the south of France, the villagers welcome the declaration of war with Germany in 1914 and flock to enlist. Among them is François Laurin, a man of jealous and violent temperament, who is married to Édith, the daughter of an upright veteran soldier Maria Lazare. François suspects, correctly, that Édith is conducting an affair with the poet Jean Diaz who lives in the village with his mother, and he sends Édith to stay with his parents in Lorraine - where she is subsequently captured and raped by German soldiers. François and Jean find themselves serving in the same battalion at the front, where the initial tensions between them give way to a close friendship that acknowledges that they both love Édith.
