Trivia Paul Gross wrote and directed this film, and it's closing song "After the War". His grandfather Michael Dunne, a WWI vet, once confessed to a young Gross about bayoneting a young lad in the forehead. Gross later said on Dunne's deathbed he was muttering for forgiveness and he was the only one who knew what was being talked about. See more »
