5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, despite what others might say!!, 11 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Passchendaele [Blu-ray] [2008] (Blu-ray)
I have noted the many negative reviews and feel this deserves better.
It is hard and stark - the war scenes are quite amazing. Mud and blood everywhere; but never gratuitous.
The "back storyline" gives it balance. (Well a bit of romance amidst the horror is fairly welcome!)
It is not just another war film. It focuses on the terrible losses experiences by our Canadian allies. Man for man, these losses were far more devastating than our own. Of course - one is too many!!
Out of population of a mere 8 million, (ours was 46 million) they lost around 67,000 persons!
Fine directing, writing and acting from Paul Gross with a fine support cast.
Five stars might be a bit OTT but I am saddned by the way it appears to have been panned.
WW1 was horrendous and crippling for all sides, I am just pleased to see a Canadian film highlighting Canada's amazing contribution.
Great effort and worth watching - although not "easy".
