A young soldier is disillusioned during World War I. Based on the book by Erich Maria Remarque. Starring Louis Wolheim, Lew Ayres, and John Wray.
This film is brilliant in the fact that it shows the reality of war. We see it through the eyes of the soldiers. We know how they think and how they feel. It’s a film that shows the humanity of war. Of course, the film is anti-war, but it is also a good reminder of what war entails. The way this film is shot is exceptional – the cameras, two of them, side by side for both the English and non-English films. It’s a classic film that holds up over time. With some exception of humor and bad acting, this is a film worth a watch.
