The Brave (1997)
"The Brave" and "Execution of Private Slovik"
I watched THE BRAVE tonight and it reminded me of EXECUTION OF PRIVATE SLOVIK. Yeah, I know those two have very different plots and are quite different in every way, but didn't anyone find some likeness in how Raphael and Private Slovik were assigned to die by the end? In the mid-part of both movies, it wasn't quite certain for the characters and even for who was watching that any of the characters would die. Slowly, then, it keeps becoming more and more likely they are really going to. Isn't it similar how Raphael and Slovik become resigned as they notice what's going on and have only a last moment mourning when death is visibly near? Raphael cries by his resting family and Slovik cries as the priest blesses him for his death.
