Referring especially to one major scene, Mendes has joked that "no rats were harmed in the making of his film...The rats, are in a way, the residents of the land. It's the humans who are passing through.

During several scenes where Lance Corporal Schofield is being shot at in the town, the sound of the gun can be heard, and then the bullet ricochet near him.

This film is overwhelming. I have nothing further to add, other than the compelling need for eternal remembrance to those who sacrificed their lives in any way, we can not fathom. We, citizens of any country, today, should feel ourselves lucky and blessed to exist. A Happy New Year to all. George from Hellas.

Do yourself a favour and watch it. And then watch it once more.
