5.0 out of 5 stars TRUELY GREAT, 13 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: All Quiet on the Western Front [DVD] (DVD)
As a child I sat with my dad a British soldier and my German uncles and great-grandfather in the kitchen of a house in a small village in Germany and listened to them talking about the wars they fought in. They brushed over the harshness of the trenches during WW1 and the cold winters on the Russian Front during WW2, they talked of the loss of friends, joked about the better times and the road home. They never ever showed any animosity to their enemy even though they had all suffered wounds in the conflicts. I listened intently as I realised that my English great-grandfather aged 21 died on the Somme while my German great-grandfather aged 17 served there on the opposing side at the same time. Never a bad word was said or has been said about who they fought. They showed respect.. This film bring back the feelings I had then, it brings back theose conversations I listened to. A truely great film.
