A Civil War story distilled to perfection.
13 November 2002 | by (Reno, Nevada) – See all my reviews

"A Time Out of War" is based on the short story "The Pickets" and takes place during the Civil War. The emphasis of the story is on the personalities of the two Union pickets who are across a stream from two Confederate pickets. Realizing the futility of their situation, the soldiers decide to call a cease-fire for a few hours--a time out of war.

The film is tightly written and edited--every scene is necessary. I highly recommend this film.
