    Stunning, shocking, heartbreaking movie. This is my favourite war film of all time and the Carl Davis score is one of the best ever written for the movies in my opinion, there really are few films that are this emotional and engaging that also give such a strong impression of what history was like. So many films about The Great War have been released since and it seems the harder they try to emulate the horrors of the war with modern techniques and technology, the further they come from the truly great, emotional cinema that was made in the years following the war itself. All Quiet on the Western Front is later a more bitter, realistic portrayal of WW1 but the way this movie mixes a lot of brutality and hardness in with good old optimistic movie magic cannot be matched, King Vidor was a master of this combination and i'll be watching this film for many many years to come. Just wish i could now see it in the cinema! 6 years 3 months ago
