    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.

    Absolutely stunning throughout. I’m really glad they dove into his motivations and relationships since I think that’s a huge part of the whole feat. The ending was surprisingly emotional as well.

    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
