User Reviews

 
Extremely good, but disturbing, as it should be.
5 February 2018 | by tfn65125See all my reviews

I don't rate myself as an overly emotional person, but I must admit this film hit a raw nerve for me. I had a relative in the First World War, perhaps that enables a better connection? The film really illustrates what an unspeakable tragedy this war was for ordinary young men of that period from a multitude of backgrounds, of course not just from this country. This story has been told and re-told many times over the years since it's release as a play in 1928, but I can't imagine a better adaption than this. The production is superb, the acting utterly compelling. I literally felt emotionally drained after leaving the cinema, it was more than a film, it was an experience I shall not forget, just as we should not forget that terrible war. Incredible film.
