An outstanding film based on a real offensive.
on 1 March 2016
Saw this bout 10 yrs ago in satellite TV. Thought it was brilliant then but have never seen it repeated since. Bought this (a french edition, but makes no difference as playable with English dialogue option as you might expect) & blue ray makes it even more remarkable. Cannot understand why more has not been made of such an outstanding telling of the harsh realities of WW1. Based very much on a real offensive & given great cinematic licence in it's telling, which is enhanced greatly by blue ray. Very much a blokie film but very remarkable & thoroughly recommend. Bought at a great price & very pleased I did. Better than I remember.
