Audience Reviews for Birdsong

It is 1916. Like many other young Englishmen, Stephen Wraysford(Eddie Redmayne) is serving his country in the trenches of France. Unlike many others, he is an officer. That entitles him to his own space, along with threatening a soldier with court martial for dereliction of duty and complaining to another officer about his soldiers being used to guard tunnel diggers, especially after one drowns. It is 1910. 20-year old Stephen has traveled to France to inspect the factory of Rene Azaire(Laurent Lafitte). One day, Stephen spies Rene's younger wife Isabelle(Clemence Poesy) bringing food to striking workers. Even though it has nothing really new to say about its none too subtly expressed themes of the randomness of war, there are still things to appreciate about "Birdsong." First, there is Eddie Redmayne which is very important. Then, there is the sensual love affair which works to help illustrate the movie's contrast between peace and war in early 20th century France.
