1917 ★★★★

My expectations were high - perhaps too high. The cinematography was great and the war scenes were dire but there was nothing fresh or new here. It was disappointing to see that the only female character was an attractive woman of an appropriate age and marital status. More of a wish fulfilment that an actual person. I may sound too damning, I did enjoy this film but I don't think it will linger in my mind.
