i watch-a the movie
Ah yeah this is depressing
Much like the two previous adaptations, this film pulls no punches in showcasing the abstract brutality described by Erich Maria Remarque (who was actually in World War 1) in his book.
However, when removing all comparisons, this movie stands on its own. It is hopeless and bleak but through it’s direction and camerawork, it paints these scenes and scenarios in hauntingly beautiful and tragic ways.
The casting is something I want to give praise to…
