Quartz watch???

I just love it, when at the end of the movie Arthur is kneeled down on his wife's tomb, weeps and almost cries, promises his wife to "always love her", and places red roses on her grave... sporting a $ 20 gold-and-steel quartz watch!!! All of this in 1916???

Other than that, sorry to see again a heartless, stone-faced, stereotyped Grrman officer, whose only task is to kill and to see how the mama-loved Irish soldier is used as a sacrificial lamb to make a boring movie. Yawn!

I am on the fence with this one

Okay it was not that bad. However, I am disappointed with the standard old interpretations of the characters. The German trench commander had the obligatory scar down the left cheek, he spoke in quick mono-syllable orders.

The young private being torn a new one because he was scared and not a man by a man who had just become so mentally scarred that he could not think any different.

And then the story "at home"... really, that added 0% to the film.

90 minutes of my life wasted.

I think that what was shown in the battle field was a very good representation of what it was like.

A downer

This is a very well done World War I picture. But it also is a complete downer. The first war was a bloody and stupid affair with thousands upon thousands of senseless and needless deaths. But that doesn't mean the movie has to be as grim as the war. There are no moments of dramatic relief, no lighter moments. Even the flashbacks to home are dark and morose. In essence this is a straightforward story of three British soldiers, commanded by a snobbish officer-twit, who become stranded in no man's land. Nothing very original there. However the staging and the photography are grimly effective and capture the utter horror of the trenches. But I question why one of the three stranded British soldiers speaks like an American. And why did the Aussies put so much effort into a film about the "pommies" when it would have been just as effective if the soldiers had been Australian.
