Interesting. This film has been made and remade an amazing number of times. It's hard to see how the original could be improved on though.

Can you imagine writing something that inspired so many films, was translated in so many languages and revered like this?

Wow.

It's a brilliant film. One could still say that the 1930 version renders it redundant, though.

Still, it's one of the most pleasant surprises of the last few years. The 2022 adaptation is a powerful, shocking anti-war film. It's perhaps even bleaker than the 1930 version in how it doesn't end on a poetic note. Death is not seen symbolically but verbatim.



Watched this few days ago. At times goes meandering on, but overall it's a brilliant movie. A brilliant antiwar movie.
And it's beautifully shot, with a lovely background score.

I agree. Powerful movie.
