About All Quiet On The Western Front
Winner of seven BAFTA's including Best Film and nominated for nine Oscars , this visually stunning film is based on Eric Maria Remarque’s anti-war novel.
Could it repeat the success of the 1930 adaptation and scoop the Best Picture Oscar?
An epic and grittily immersive saga set in the final days of WWI, it follows an idealistic teenager whose patriotic fervour disappears once he faces the brutal realities of life on the front.
Director: Edward Berger
Cast: Daniel Brühl, Albrecht Schuch, Sebastian Hülk
In German with subtitles
A film that feels both aesthetically dazzling and full of necessary truths: an antiwar drama that transcends the bombast of propaganda mostly just because it's so artfully and indelibly made
