Product Description

From director Steven Spielberg comes War Horse, an epic adventure for audiences of all ages.

Set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War, War Horse begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows Joey’s the extraordinary journey as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets – British cavalry, German soldiers and a French farmer and his granddaughter – before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.

The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse – an odyssey of joy and sorrow, passionate friendship and high adventure. War Horse is one of the great stories of friendship and war – a best-selling book by author Michael Morpurgo, it was turned into an award-winning stage production and now comes to screen in an epic adaptation by one of the great directors in film history.

The perfect companion for all movie enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

Unabashedly sentimental, emotionally direct and certainly aiming for a very broad audience, Spielberg's "War Horse" is a really interesting homage to an old fashioned epic Hollywood film-making style.

Everything about the film is obviously a little melodramatic and not "realistic" in the way "Saving Private Ryan" was, but I don't think Spielberg is trying to make the "Saving Private Ryan" of World War I movies here. This is a movie so earnest and straightforward, it's almost more of a children's fairy tale or fable (the 1982 novel is apparently categorized as a "children's book"). So as a viewer, I guess you either give in to the style or it just doesn't work for you, but for me, it's a surprisingly affecting film.

And what I think I enjoy the most about "War Horse" is the cinematography, which is nothing short of spectacular. Spielberg and Janusz Kaminski are obviously in complete control of their craft and here they're really showing off their stuff. I don't think "War Horse" as a whole is quite up there with the "great" Spielberg films, but in terms of cinematography, it is. The lighting, framing, use of natural landscapes, camera moves... it's all on display here and it all works.

I tried not to read the reviews or hype about this film as I wanted to experience it without any bias.From the opening scene of the lush fields of an English country-side, the idealic stone farmhouse- the flushed cheeks and blue eyes of our young hero,Jeremy Irvine and the sleek chestnut tones and velvet black eyes of the main protagonist Joey- everything glowed with the technicolour of days gone past.
Spielberg and Williams are a match made in cinema heaven - for each shot that has an emotional charge, the score will take you by the hand to get you there-to those emotional highs and lows. Remember the days of Star Wars , Raiders of the Last Ark, ET; beloved films that are permanently etched onto our frontal lobe, with a great composer and a great director, being the artists who put them there.
War Horse has that kind of magic. Originating from a Michael Morpugo book,whose narratives always seem to hover around those sentimental heart strings and the dynamic duo are now a trio. For those nay-sayers , pounding your little fists and shouting, 'manipulative film-making'- News Flash! All film-making is supposed to and designed to have an impact on the viewer and most filmakers try very hard to achieve this- it's just that Spielberg does it so much better.
There is plenty to sink your teeth into with this wonderful film including a marvelous ensemble cast. Take the family or just yourself- and bring the tissues.

By Malcolm TOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 Jun. 2012
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
War Horse, the movie, is an adaptation for big screen of the children's novel
of the same name by Michael Morpurgo. It was also staged as a play for the
National Theatre.

Brilliantly directed by Steven Spielberg and introducing newcomer the very
able Jeremy Irvine, alongside, Emily Watson and Peter Mullan. It focuses
on the coming of age and friendship of a boy Albert and his horse Joey.

It is World War One and Joey is sold to the British Army, used and abused
in the way that humans all too often treat animals, echoes of "Black Beauty"
come to mind.

Set in the beautiful desolation of the Dartmoor country side and Castle
Combe village in Wiltshire, with other locations for the war footage,
it is good honest family entertainment. The war scenes though stark are
not particularly bloody and should not have youngsters or Grandma hiding
behind the Sofa. Certificated for age 12.

The back cover lists a Bonus Feature : War Horse - The Journey Home,
that was missing from my copy of the DVD, there is, however, a short
bonus feature titled The Look with insights from Spielberg, some cast
and crew.

Total viewing is approx 140 minutes.
Subtitles are available in English
and other languages.

Well worth buying !

Having seen this at the cinema I just had to get the DVD. Why? Because this is a truly remarkable film of hope, love & kindred friendship between a young lad & his horse. From the very outset you are drawn back in time to a harsher world than we live in today, one of basic simplicity & needs, of a nation yet to suffer even more profound & harder times ahead. This may not be a true story but it accurately portrays what life would have been like in the lead up to & on the front line during World War I. For all concerned, especially the men & horses of the cavalry regiments, this film depicts a powerful & moving account of the atrocities of war that were faced on a daily basis. Wonderfully cast, great cinematography & visual effects I cannot recommend this film highly enough, it is most definitely one of my all time greats & a worthwhile addition to my DVD collection.

This is an outstanding film produced by the master himself, Steven Spielberg. The original stage play about two horses caught up in the carnage of World War 1, and their humanising effect on everybody with whom they came into contact was a smash hit on the London Stage. It was unique for its slightly larger than life horse puppets animated by the members of the Handspring Puppet Theatre from South Africa. The transferral of such a masterpiece from stage to film can be hazardous in that the magic can be lost. That certainly did not happen in this case, and I regard this as a 'must have' film. Please see it. This DVD is now one of my prized possessions, and is required viewing for all horse lovers and others who appreciate the civilising effect that beautiful animals can have on the human race.
