Movie Info

During the First World War, men faced questions about themselves never asked before on such a scale when the most enormously destructive conflict the world had ever seen felled tens of thousands every week. Some men broke, and found themselves in asylums. This is a film about some of these men, and some of those who treated them. It deals with a change in the conception of the world so vast that it needed a whole new language to deal with it.more

Audience Reviews for Regeneration

A great depiction of post traumatic stress disorder in an environment within which it was not condoned. Saddening but likely very true to life.

Super Reviewer


This movie really suffers from what I'll call 'Adaptation syndrome'- they try too hard to cram too much of the plot of the book in the movie without any of the heart. That said, it has its moments (mostly in good lines) though the acting is lacking and the emotion is a bit too cold.
