glad to find this film at last - it's been haunting me
28 December 2003 | by (sydney) – See all my reviews

I saw this film years ago and couldn't remember what it was called so I'm glad to find it on the net at last. Some of the comments posted on this site critically analyse this amazing film applying 21st century wisdom to it and it's production. It is what it is. Most of these boys (the patients) had hardly seen a box-brownie let alone a director and film camera. Their responses are gut wrenching, awkward and the soldiers are - what would now seem - abruptly dealt with. Yet the psychiatrists show these returning soldiers the way forward. Slowly the patients gain enough mental footholds to rejoin post-war society. Just watching it will make you a better person.
