A realistic war drama
15 August 2015 | by GUENOT PHILIPPESee all my reviews

This is a movie that describes very well the cruelty of WW1; the authentic, cruel, fierce side of it, the ugliness of this waste of human kind. There were some good french movies about it, such as FRAGMENTS D'ANTONIN, made several years ago and which spoke of the terrible side effects of bombs on survivors. This movie which I am talking today is of course a pamphlet against war and its atrocities which reminds us JOHNNY GOT HIS GUN with terrific hospital sequences. A good try for this young director for his first feature. Characterization is also at its top, with very convincing actors. A real must see for historians, with maybe some not so accurate details that I myself did not notice.
