Finally, of all places, Netflix has given us a decent and picturesque anti-war movie.
The film has almost nothing to do with the book, however.

I was disappointed鈥 the book and the older film are great.
 
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Agree. Forget about the book. Just see the film as it is. It鈥檚 a great film that seems to capture the time very well.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Different then book but very good movie . But sad to me 馃スMany scenes looks like Bachmut now 馃ズ
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
The bookm is always better.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Didn鈥檛 read the book but just watched the movie. The entire time I kept saying this is exactly what ru is doing. Mobiks gladly going to war thinking glory. Get a severe dose of reality but doing nothing. My heart breaks for Ukraine and it鈥檚 people.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Watch it. All bloody bestiality of war in seemingly endless closeups until breathing finally stops. If you haven't hated Putin already, you will after watching it.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
The movie doesn't follow the storyline of the book. However it does succeed in showing people what war is. It's hell. And from this angle it has everything to do with the book.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Yeah the politicial surroundings displayed in the film are not rooted in reality. And stuff like immidiate killings of deserters also didnt happen back then like that. Even the french who killed the most deserters during the war didnt do it like that

Hey @IAPonomarenko, when you are looking for quality entertainment, check out Babylon 5. It has lot of parallels to the current war and what Ukrainians are going through. It is long, but it pays off big time. Here's a great clip: youtube.com/watch?v=pJmuHN鈥

The German generals and soldiers share a lot in common with the Russian forces in Ukraine Instead of Paris, they thought they鈥檇 march on Kyiv And just the same, they鈥檒l lead many more young men to their deaths before realizing they鈥檒l never win

Not sure whether the film has almost nothing to do with the book. To me it was very impressing. In the end, it is about the pointless position war. During the whole war, frontlines only changed few hundred metres back and forth, but millions of soldiers died. Pointless.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Beautiful cinematography. I hear they got the look of trench warfare right--very gritty, scary stuff. Hand-to-hand fighting looked real. The futility of that conflict was captured well. I bet it's banned in Russia 馃槒

Sven Hassel books show the truth of the Eastern front war.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Saw this a couple of weeks back. Way better than anything the UK or US has produced about the Great War.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
I saw a few days ago. Impressive.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Both the book and the original movie from the 30s are better. A lot better. Disappointing, since, in general, German war movies are superior to Hollywood鈥檚. Gorgeous cinematography, though.

voy a ver este remake , el libro de Remarque es muy bueno
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
The 1930 version is still the best
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Even so it is an amazing film, better in German. It gives what I feel is a realistic view of the hell all sides went through. My great grandfather fought against these guys in the Arden. By the end there was no trees left.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Actually Maria Remarque wasnt in the frontline troops. Therfore the things he wrote were never his direct experience. Thats why i never read the book. Instead I strongly recommend to read Ernst Juengers "In Stahlgewittern" (storm from steel) or better his diaries.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
I saw this movie and was totally blown away. War is horrible. No other way to describe it. Folks who want to bring fascism back and who wish to start wars need to see this. They obviously have no idea what they are actually starting.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Thanks for warning. I watch only pro-war movies.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
I had absolutely the same feeling.The movie has nothing to do with a book.Couldn鈥檛 even watch a half of movie
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Best anti-war movie so far, also a book by V盲in枚 Linna, The Unknown Soldier. Original or any of the remakes will do.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
After this I watched 1930 version. Not bad movie too, but 2022 version better
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Great movie indeed. Strong Bahmut vibes based on the recent pictures from there. :/
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
this movie is a masterpiece. a level above other war movies like save private Ryan, Dunkirk etc...
 
 
 
 
Poor compared to the original which really was a classic.
 
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Watched last week 馃憣
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Did they make significant plot deviations from the book? I still remember reading it in high school and watching both movies. Haven鈥檛 seen this one yet.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
I read the book but idk if the movie was so much anti war to be honest. I think it glorified it a bit. And shared the nazi propaganda that the idea of the treaty of versailles lead to world war 2. Still an amazing incre铆ble movie. But anti war? Not really.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Its graphics and cinematography is on another level, it鈥檚 so realistic that it became scary
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
But it has the books message and that's what matters
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Try the 1979 version鈥
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Have the same spirit, is a very goog movie. Is a bad adaptation
 
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
yea, the original movie was better I think.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Worth it, already watched the 1979 version to compare. It has several differences, but understandably, since they would assume a lot of people already watched the previous versions and needed something different.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
Correct. But should it? Open question for me.
 
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
It's time for big budget films about the war of Russian aggression in Ukraine. The war doesn't have to end to start making movies about it. That's what happened in WWII.
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
I got bored 馃ケ this movie had nothing special
 
In reply to @IAPonomarenko
True. But reminds us how useless wars are. Where are the diplomats ?
