"In the fashion of Saving Private Ryan, this depicts the absurdity"
5 stars

In the fashion of Saving Private Ryan, this depicts the absurdity of war

This film is draining, let me say that.. it is a master stroke of a film showing the futility that people see when in the trenches.

The whole air of this film is subtle and powerful. It is not a big explosions film, it is not a a-list star studded event, It is a british war film with some spectacular flourishes..

The acting is top notch, specifically from Johnny Lee Miller and Jonathan Pryce, who both deserve to be recognised much more than they are.

The direction is not extravagant, it too is subtle and apt for the tone of the piece.

So I will just say go see it.

It has though spawned a new saying amongst my peers... 'MEN DIED!'

On tghe downside I think that the budget needed to be a tad higher. But this is a minor quibble

I warn you, it aint no rollercoaster laugh a minute...
