All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front ★★★

“The moment i bent over an opponent of my age, i was about to finish him off. But this time I was kneeling on a mirror. This death that I was going to give, it was a small suicide.” -Giraudoux, La guerre de Troie n’aura pas lieu

Very realistic, impeccably illustrates the utter absurdity of war. However, it’s nothing but a generic WWI movie. We’ve seen this so many times on screen.
