Trivia

It was a deliberate choice not to identify the soldiers or battlegrounds as that would ground the film in too many facts and slow it down. Instead, the desire was to make this about the experience of being a soldier. See more »

Goofs

While British tanks after 1916 were painted brown/tan, the film is explicit that it does not name a battle, or a year that the various segments came from. Since the specific shots are not listed as being from a specific date or battle, they could be of either green, or tan. In addition, the Mark V tank at the Imperial War Museum, is green. See more »

Prepare yourself.

Utterly haunting movie of life on the western front in WW1. Peter Jackson has thrown some serious computer firepower to bring these soldiers back to life.You will have never seen anything quite like this before.Breathtaking in many parts!
