    World War I movie

    This is a very good movie which offers two perspectives on World War I and can be used to stimulate discussion and a comparison to more modern wars. It shows the influence of the nationalistic movement in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century

    Accurately Portrays War.

    This movie accurately portrayed war. All the deppressing details. In one scene, the protagonist is hiding in a bomb crater, and stabs a French soldier who falls in. He stays with the still moaning body all night, and finally kills him. In another scene, a patient in a convent turned military hospital, a person tries to kill himself, and is taken to the "dying room", where severly wounded soldiers are left to die. The movie's plot was a bit slow in getting started. This is a VERY deppressing movie.

    Excellent

    This is a story of the Great War and the promising generation destroyed by it. The purpose of this movie is to show that war is a horrible, nasty buisness, never to be glorified. The best hope we can have is to remember the mistakes of the past, educate and inform the masses, so we at least have a chance of not repeating history.

    All Quiet on the Movie Front

    All Quiet on the Western Front is one of the best movies of all time. It shows what WW I (the war to end all wars) did to many people, and it shows it from the point of view from the Germans. One of the great things about the later adaptation of the wonderful story is the battle scenes in which the camera spans through the battlefield. The movie of course has two of my favorite scenes in film. The first being where Paul is hiding and the French soldier gets into his trench and Paul is forced to stab him. It is here that he realizes how much he hates war as he is forced to watch the French soldier's slow and agonizing death. The second being the infamous scene where he reaches out of his trench to touch a butterfly and is shot by the opposing side. The later version is good but for some movie fanatics the 1930 version might suit them more.
