A young German soldier’s terrifying experiences and distress on the western front during World War I.

Germany, May 1917. 17-year-old Paul Baumer enthusiastically enlists in the German army and heads off to war. His head is filled with patriotism, honour, visions of heroism and the confidence that Germany will win the war. He soon learns that his impressions of war are far from the reality.

This is your normal war movie: a lot of senseless loss, capturing the horrors of war, the madness of the ones who lead it and the sadness of the ones who fight it. It’s raw, bloody, brutal, and at some points even gross, just as any movie about war should be. It’s a good lesson for the morons who still preach war, especially since there’s war going on not even 500 miles away from where i’m standing.

Good movie, the special effects are great, the music (including the drone sound) is fantastic, the acting is great. All in all, a six popcorns movie, deserving its nine Oscar nominations (Best Movie, Best International Movie, Makeup & Hair, Original Score, Sound, Visual FX, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Production Design)
