Trivia

Throughout the shoot the production had 4 basic rigs that were always at the ready in order to be able to take advantage of the changeable weather conditions. A chief meteorologist was on location the entire time. See more »

Goofs

After the whistle to go "over the top" as Schofield leaves the trenches in the climactic scene in his desperate bid to reach Colonel Mackenzie, three (seemingly unarmed) charging British soldiers are seen on the left of the frame. It would have been impossible for them to reach that position without starting their attack alone well before the whistle, and were surely mistakenly added as a special effect. See more »

Quotes

Lance Corporal Blake: Am I dying?
Lance Corporal Schofield: Yes... yes, I think you are.

An achievement
12 December 2019 | by eevaiviloSee all my reviews

It's a stunning watch from start to finish. The amount of work that went into this film alone deserves your attendance, and even then, the story never stalls, and has a fair balance between war and humanity, and has some of the most incredible camera work I've seen in a while. It's hands down my favorite film of 2019.
