Dark and powerful
12 May 2009 | by (Bracebridge Ont) – See all my reviews

A stupendous film that quietly captures the futility, the absurdity, the grimness and the desperation of the third year of World War I. The acting is low key. Everything is shot in brownish tones that evoke the era. Even the weather is bleak. The general mood and tone of the film is all enveloping. The settings, the costumes and the props all seem accurate. Everything comes to-gether beautifully. In actual fact, I do not believe that the mental health of British troops was treated as compassionately i n the first war as this film portrays. Shell shock was usually dismissed as LMF (Lack of moral fiber.) No matter. It is still a gripping, powerful film with the same appeal a thoughtful stage play on the same subject might convey.
