4 out of 10 Superb film. A classic of the cinema
Ken from Louth, 02 Dec 2009
Long before Kubrick or Spielberg ever made war films there was this excellent film about WW1 from 1930. Lew Ayers is excellent as Paul.

It brilliantly evokes the wild enthusiasm people had for signing up and the contrast of the reality. A true classic of the cinema made more enjoyable by this remastered version.
