It has been a while since I saw this flick but since it is such a classic, I was really eager to re-watch it. Honestly, it didn't expect to be blown away like this. I mean, I enjoyed it back then but I didn't remember that it was that good. This is indeed a true masterpiece directed by Jean Renoir. I thought it was just brilliant and worked on so many levels.

My movie year 2013 (659 movies items)

"7.8. (Teatteri) Mielestäni melko yksinkertaisesti esitetty elokuva, mutta silti yksi niistä parhaista tärpeistä leffavuodelleni 2013. Sodan hedelmiä ovat hienommat ihmiset, jotka nauttivat olostaan tuhonkin keskellä auktoriteettijohtajan toimiessa juurina mullassa. Silti myös yläluokka suhtautuu tavallisen rahvaan tapaan (siniveriseen) viholliseensa toisena ihmisenä, ei maasta revittävänä rikkaruohona. Lopulta elokuva kaataa niin rodulliset, kielelliset kuin maantieteellisetkin raja"
