Audience Reviews for A Farewell to Arms

    I find that Gary Cooper outside of High Noon is not someone suited for a lot of films. Here he bumbles through Hemingway who unfortunately was alive to see it.

    A very melodramatic and decently created first Hemingway adaptation of A Farewell to Arms that while not reaching the greatness of the book, is commendable. The film is slow and often filled with a lot of overly emotional events but if you can endure that you are in for a good and tragic love story unfolding and the devastating result.

    The book fails to carry over to the screen.

    Very long and very melodramatic! Good actors and a realistic story, but it was too melodramatic for my taste.
