Powerful anti-war production...

"We live in the trenches out there. We fight. We try not to be killed, but sometimes we are. That's all."

Brilliant, relentless and heart-wrenching anti-war drama is still as powerful now as it was when released almost 80 year ago.

All Quiet on the Western Front is a classic war movie that is tragically overlooked due to its age, which is a real shame. The film is se... read more

All Quiet On The Western Front has always been a landmark of cinema. It was one of the very first sound films and one of the first Best Picture winners so I couldn't afford to miss this one! When I watched it, I absolutely loved it! It was filmed amazingly for its time and the special effects in the action scenes were awesome too! I mean, compared to action war films nowadays like Saving Private R... read more

Since this movie has a very good reputation, I was really eager to check it out and I had some rather high expectations. To be honest, even though some older movies are still considered as classics, in fact, they feel rather dated and I’m not always a fan of them (especially comedies like ‘Some Like It Hot’ or ’Breakfast at Tiffany's’).

"22.11. A hugely groundbreaking and influential war film. Around this time people were barely used to sound, and these guys managed to break all the rules by creating a real war with massive sound editing, mixing and all. Not only that, but they had to innovate and find new ways to fix the clumsy silencing technique in order to get all the cranes and wires working. This, and imagine all the work done with the explosives and realistic battle scenes etc. Did I remember to say how groundbreaking th"

"“What I love is this is a movie. It was created on a soundstage, and in fields with trenches. This isn’t a documentary, and it almost has the look of . The camera’s very low to the ground, so you’re where the soldiers were in the trenches…. It is a harrowing picture.” -Robert Osborne “For me this movie is an essential because the grittiness of these war sequences is really a model for other films that are to come, like Kubrick’s Paths of Glory, fantastic tracking shots through "

“(OK) Great, everything big pacifist oriented in films as "1917" is already here. The travellings from the trenches, that running view as that from rats or mice (there are sequences with rats also) are so elocuent, not just a technical achievement. And feelings, passion, between friends and generartion, scenes un the hospital, Tom coming from the 'dying room', the boots of the dead; and first of all remember that all the passion began in a classroom.” read more
