Special effects are far from more recent ones, but once you finish this movie, you feel like you lost a friend. Or more. Shell shock is quickly seen on a scene on the front. Face to face combat takes the stage. And dead bodies.

This book was one of my first on the WWI, as teenager. It still haunts me, over 40.

Minute 2:16:00 “But I know now, I should never come back. Out there all the things that I do, there is no other meaning of life, cos it has no meaning. My companion at the front are the only truth I know. They are my books, my family, my life. I depend on them, and don’t depend on anything else. Mother, it’s a terrible thing to say, but I feel I am going back to my real home”.
