"Not Yet Kameraden!"

People who added this item 274  Average listal rating (175 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating 7.5 
2. Cross of Iron (1977)
This should be an obligatory movie for all war and blood greedy people, so they would understand that war is nothing but a hell.

3. Alexander Nevsky (1938)
I think that this is the greatest movie made by Eisenstein with perfect scene and choreography and wonderful camera.

4. All Quiet on the Western Front (1930)
Adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque's novel published just two years before the film was made and banned in Germany in 1933. Archetype of an anti-war movie.

7. The Human Condition I: No Greater Love (1959)
After I finished watching the whole trilogy within two days I've realized that the first part is the easiest to watch as compared to other two sequels, it was perfect introduction to the story of the main protagonist. He made spectators to slowly and slowly see and understand the horrors of war, made him to observe the evolution of characters and made the spectator yearn for the continuation of the story.

8. The Human Condition II: The Road to Eternity... (1959)
In the second part you will have a view on war terrors from different angle and the craving for the final part will grow stronger.

17. No Man's Land (2001)
Another from the group of war movies which will make you really think about absurdity of wars. Some absurd scenes in this film will make you laugh but with the laughter the sad reality will appear.
