unexpected perspective
22 March 2013 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

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.
