21 Brothers tells the story of the Canadians 21st Battalion as they prepare for the battle of Courcelette in WWI. Taking place in real time, the film follows Sgt. Reid as he must get his men ready for the impending battle. Not only must he prep his battalion Sgt. Reid must also deal with the day to day difficulties of life in the trenches, including injuries to his men, supply issues, and an underage recruit who has recently been sent into the front lines.

This film is great - filming the entire film in one shot gives it a different angle and you are able to connect with the men in the trenches on a more personal level. Each character is able to deliver the emotions they are having while at war in their own personal manner. It really separates each character.
Without battle scenes, this film differs from the average war film. However, despite the lack of battle, you are able to understand the hardship these men are going through. It worked.
Great running time - if it were any longer it may have been hard to stay engaged but it ended at the right point.
