Howard Hawks brings Hollywood's efficiency to this remake of a wonderful French film, "Les Croix de Bois". Unfortunately the intensity is lost in translation. The competition between the two main characters and the love story distract from the main intrigue: the war. The Lubitsch-esque moments make you forget that these men may die at any moment. The absurdity and the incredible courage of the French soldiers is also not fully developed.
Nonetheless, the film remains pleasant and worth watching.
