This review is from: All Quiet on the Western Front [DVD] (DVD)
Coming from an A level English Literature student I thought this film was fantastic. I found it highly educational, and despite having read a lot of World War One literature (including All Quiet on the Western Front), this really illustrated for me the different kinds of weoponry and their distinctive sounds, the explosive impact they have on the men, and the distance between the opposing trenches. Additionally the camera in the battle scenes sometimes shoots from the perspective of the men looking over the top, which was very insightful as I could see the battle from the soldiers' own perspective.
This has been hugely beneficial for my studies and wider konwledge, and recommend it to any student studying the war, or to anyone genuinely interested.
