Critical

Adaptation of the great anti-war novel “All Quiet on the Front” by Erich Maria Remarque, a book set in World War I which was masterfully turned into a film in 1930 by Lewis Milestone with Lew Ayres in the lead role.

In this German version, the book is partially blurred although part of the author’s point of view survives.

no-news-versus-2022-review-reviewThe horror of war, of violence; dehumanisation; the emotional manipulation of the person and their use of power with collectivist feelings to end up being forgotten as an object of exploitation in a trench.

An identification medal.
A few broken glasses in the mud.

In the book, the “intimate” counts more than the epic, the psychological depth of a schoolboy plunged into a nightmarish battle of survival, living daily with scarcity and death, confronted with relationships and feelings.

The film picks up some of that meaning, though character progression is minimal, with interchangeable secondary characters, uncreative cutscenes with underlines, contrasting shots at high command, lukewarm emotions beyond the obvious. .in a chain of fear of war in cold tones.

Nevertheless, the film has aesthetic value, with precious wide shots, aerial perspectives, a nervous shoulder camera in the trenches with close-ups, pinpoint intensity… and it conveys its messages sufficiently.
