Customer Review

on 15 December 2008
A fascinating film of the American Civil War, told from the perspective of the Southerners, which has much to say about war today. The position of sympathising with the Southern slave-owners puts the viewer into a delberately uncomfortable position

The film tells the story of a young, disorganised group of soldiers, thrust into doing terrible things for a cause that they do not fully understand. It deals with racism and the effects of violence.

Perhaps the most telling scene is when the central characters discuss whether they will eventually succeed. They talk about how the yankees, in building a new town, built the schoolhouse first. They were always going to win because they want the whole world to think like them, whereas the Southerners are merely fighting to be left alone and continue their lives as they know it.
