Storyline

Private Peaceful details the gritty rural lives and loves of Tommo and Charlie - two young brothers - and their poor Devonshire family from 1909 until 1916, when the outbreak of war destroys their country idyll. Both join up (one under age) leaving behind the beautiful Molly who is the love of both their lives. The young men survive gas attacks, shelling, German troops and the appalling deaths of their close friends. But one thing they cannot escape is summary military justice. Written by Guy de Beaujeu

User Reviews

a war film
29 November 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

About family, love , brotherhood and about death. And hope. And, again, about family. A beautiful - bitter film about choices and about the answers to them. Or just that kind of film about , in simple and honest manner , life. I admitt, the basic reason fom me , to see the film was the presence of Jack O' Connell . But the film could not be reduced at his performance. All is familiar but the message of the movie deserves attention. For a precise waz to define the profound truth. And for a good story in which each level is well crafted.
