one of THE GREATEST
13 February 2018 | by mlink-36-9815See all my reviews

If you think of movies as sitting like a lump then NERVEN is not for you. but NERVEN makes you feel the grief in such a way few movies can do. great acting pulls it off. not hysterical sped up but you go inside the lives and once there the movie NERVEN will not let you out. angst poured on top of more angst until maybe "The Whole World Is Mad" yes. for such a war over nothing to kill so many. very few movies bring this home as NERVEN does. The restoration is so good you can hardly believe anything is missing. the tinting was done beautifully so that it enhances the moods. Way ahead of its time you need to buy it and throw away The Big Parade as such garbage that it is.
