    What about “Oh! What a Lovely War” (1969) or “Johnny Got His Gun” (1971)

    All Quiet On The Western Front is very close to how things were in the war.

    My favourite WWI movie is Joyeux Noel. A truly beautiful/horrible movie depicting the similarities between the opponents, and their true warmth. It was the end of innocence for the entire world, and the introduction of faceless combatants because of the horrible overhead bombing. Yet when they recognized that it was Christmas, a temporary truce was felt during one brief night.

    My WW1 favorite – no question, “All Quiet On The Western Front”. I read the book by Erich Maria Remarque in my high school English class, and both it and the movie are very powerful in showing the horrors, human suffering and futility of war, as seen through the eyes of a young German soldier. AQOTWF and “Paths Of Glory” – IMO the two best anti-war movies of all time!

    I’m with Dyadya Abdul. I have just re-watched Sir Richard Attenborough’s brilliant directorial debut OH! WHAT A LOVELY WAR and find it the most all-encompassing look I have ever viewed of the human cost of war. There’s humanity, hypocracy, nobility, ugliness, tragedy, obtuseness, arrogance and the devastating reaffirmation that those who make the wars DO NOT indeed fight the wars.

    Up next is the emotionally shattering JOHNNY GOT HIS GUN, another tough one to sit through.

      “The King of Hearts” is a GREAT satire on war. set in WW1 a pigeon carryer is sent into a town to disarm a bomb, then the story really takes off. I belive I’m the only preson to have the movie dubbed into english. All others I know of are with subtitles.

    I’ve got this movie on VHS called “Going Home.” It’s a post WWI docu-drama based on an actual event. After WWI the Canadian Government couldn’t afford to ship their troops back home so they just left them in England for a couple of years. The Canadians kept getting promises when they would be shipped back but it was all lies to appease them. When they started getting surly an officer starts referring to them as Bolsheviks and sees them as trying to start an insurrection when all they want is to go home. All this is right during the end of the Russian Revolution.
    The movie starrs Paul Maxwell and Nicholas Campbell who both had roles in A Bridge Too Far.
    I’ve tried to look this title up on IMDB and under both actors and it isn’t listed. Has anyone else seen this movie?
