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 »

Quotes

Soldier: You don't look, you see. You don't hear, you listen. You taste the top of your mouth. Your nose is filled with fumes and death. But the near of civilization has dropped away.

Everyone over the age of 13 should be made to watch this.

This is simple exceptional work at every level from Peter Jackson and his team.

It showed the pure fragility of life, and how the soldiers dealt with it, mainly with humour and machine gun boiled tea.

It's haunting yet funny, disturbing yet uplifting. It's war. And this is the closest I ever want to come to it.
