omne ignotum pro magnifico
20 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Everything unknown is taken for magnificent...

Since we have so little to compare the visuals to... whereas the narrative....

If you wish to find a documentary that speaks of the suffering of the world, which visibly and glaringly surrounds us, the boys in World War I, and of confusion, passion, evil --

This is not it.....

A war without politics!! Without Junker greed! Without rape nor rotting Doughboys in the trenches... the Clean war in color... flying things and heavy iron rolling in color....

However, it's a great way to copyright public domain footage.

The Latins had a phrase for this "omne ignotum pro magnifico: Everything unknown is taken for magnificent.. and for the first time color is added to World War I -- magnificent try!

Someday I'd like to license some of the footage for my own version of the war... maybe not a commercial as producer Martin's "Greatest SAS Missions" (2004) (mini) TV Series (producer)but certainly more of the reason the French and English dreaded the subject.... The Great War...
