Movie Info

In the final moments of World War I, a platoon of French soldiers is sent off on a dangerous and ultimately pointless mission. This intensely wrought, highly emotional German anti-war drama comes from auteur director G.W. Pabst. Alternative title: Comrades of 1918.

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (9)

  • The thinking man's All Quiet on the Western Front. A coruscating portrait of the transcendent desolation caused by war.

  • The truth of the movie is all in the trenches.

  • The always protean Pabst made a brilliant adjustment to sound.

    May 10, 2005
  • Rather than force common war story beats onto the characters, Pabst employs a more observational tone. His camera was free to move along the surface of the trenches, giving the full wide expanse of what the soldiers were experiencing.

    May 11, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • remains a powerful testament to its physical, psychological, and spiritual horrors

    February 5, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Though Westfront 1918's plot lacks the conventional pacing of the similar American production All Quiet on the Western Front, its narrative is thoroughly modernist as a breakdown of coherence and context.
