this brilliant anti-war film from Kubrick shows some of the sides of the world wars we don’t usually see. As brits we like to see all the soldiers of our allies as brave men however, we don’t often think about the injustices that took place. This story is about humanity and justice, and how it is often over shone by pride and patriotism and satisfying self ambitions, especially in a time like when it’s set. The setting and the story go along together perfectly, and the strong dialogue just enhanced this film as a whole. Throughout the whole second half of this movie i was just begging for a change of circumstance, or someone to step out and speak up, and was honestly surprised when it didn’t happen. And i think this is what makes this film so effective and makes it stick in your mind, Kubrick often does a great job at doing this. He goes against what the audience is begging for, leaving you in a state of shock, and really does stir up the emotion in you. I wouldn’t say i’m anti-war or anti-military however this movie really makes you think. It really did stick out from any other war time movie i have seen, showing the true ugly sides of affairs, parts that we shouldn’t be proud of. The ending with the german singing and the humming of the troops was such a memorable closing sequence, and despite the fact that i was begging for more, it was a perfect place for this film to end. This is just another Kubrick classic and would recommend if you enjoy his other films, and really would recommend this to any movie fan.

incredible film with a plot like nothing i have ever seen before it starts out quite comedic and light hearted and slowly develops over the whole of the film into this nightmarish horror, ultimately leading to the ending each character was so well written, and they all had their key roles to this story line, not one of them was pointless or unneeded like you see in a lot of films this films plays games with your mind in the sense that you don’t know who to side with. Do you side with the poor family who are trying to make a living and survive, even if that does mean having to manipulate and ultimately, not be very morally straight people ? Or do you side with the rich family, who while doing nothing wrong to anyone, also don’t do anything right - and that over the course of their successful lives, become naive to the world around them. This wasn’t like anything i expected when i first started watching it, but could now be up there with some of my favourite films To anyone who holds a slight prejudice to this film, and simply doesn’t want to watch due to the fact it’s in a different language, i would just say give it a watch because it would definitely blow your mind, as it did mine. The plot is so intricate and interesting yet is very easy to understand, despite having to use subtitles. 10/10 would very much recommend. can definitely see this being a cult classic - will be one of the big films from this era

amazing film and very beautiful daniel day lewis is brilliant once again and vicky kreips was great, the acting was so natural and paced so well it could have been real life. while it was a good story, i think the acting is what really made this film what it is, so sincere. every bit of emotion is captured through the timing, dialogue and background score, it really couldn’t have been done better. Paul thomas anderson blew it away again, great film, would recommend
