This movie is very old it s been 80 years it came out however the great story are eternal and so is this movie.war is never something beautiful especially when there is no meaningful reason for it and with this movie you learn it all.You see the desillusion of youths who took war as an adventure and finally lose themself in the meaningless of its.the stroy takes place in the world war 1.
The camera game is pretty old so we have a different point of view from what we commonly get in our modern war movies but despite that the description of the battle the talent of the screenplay and the old touch make it something valuable to watch you have with this movie a real insight inside the drama of war.It s like opening an old picture album with black and white photo and discovering through an old time the constant of humanity .
One of the big point of this movie is that it is told for the german point of view which in the context of the world war two and the world war one gives it a powerful strengh for the viewer.After seeing this movie i guarantee you that you will despise war to the utmost and read about the book where it comes from.The book ends like this:"He fell in October 1918, on a day that was so quiet and still on the whole front, that the army report confined itself to? the single sentence" All quiet on the Western Front. He had fallen forward and lay on the earth as though sleeping. Turning him over one saw that he could have not suffered long; his face had an expression of calm, as though almost glad the end had come ." ,The movie begins like this" this movie is neither an accusation nor a confession,and least of all an adventure to those who stand face to face with it will try simply to tell of a generation of men who even though they may have escaped its shell,were destroyed by the war..."
ps:Saving private ryan i snot a comparaison to this movie at all;for they are not in the same range private ryan is far less gud and meaningfukl that thi sone.
