An impeccable characterization of the absurdity of nationalist military ideals in the 20th century. Surprisingly touching and surprisingly haunting. One of the most blatant and convincing anti-war films that I’ve seen.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Wow this just got more depressing the longer it went on. A pretty beautiful film about falling in love even when there’s so many reasons not to. The editing really impressed me throughout and the performances and cinematography were also both solid. I wish there was a little more build up of their relationship at the beginning though.
As if I wasn’t already one to overthink the consequences of my actions, watching this did not help me in that regard. Fantastic visuals, sound, and acting. My first Noé film and I liked it a lot more than I thought I would.
Side note: second French movie I’ve watched this week that has blown me away
