What is the movie All Quiet on the Western Front about?
Based on the famous World War I novel of the same name written by Erich Maria Remarque, “All Quiet on the Western Front” (1930) is considered one of cinematic classics, as well as one of the greatest epic movies ever made. It was directed by Lewis Milestone and tells the tale of a group of young Germans just out of the secondary school who are pushed into the midst of the biggest carnage the world has seen up to that point. We follow them from the start of the war, just as they are finishing their secondary education, then over to their brief military training, and then all the way to the gruesome battle front. Young man are faced with the horrors of war before they even make it to their positions, and with each passing day we see them suffering one tragedy after another. Some of the soldiers are cracking under the stress of falling bombs and flying bullets, and it leads them all to question the cause of their struggle, as well as the cause of war in general. After the patriotic speeches of their military training they are now cynical and disillusioned with the glory of war, but the battle keeps raging on all around them and the only thing they can do is keep fighting and try to stay alive. One by one, the young man are either killed off or suffer terrible injuries, until there’s not one of them left alive by the end of the film. “All Quiet on the Western Front” was the first movie to win an Academy Award for the best motion picture and the best director.

A classic anti war film, “All Quiet on the Western Front” represents a masterwork of filmmaking. Even these days over then eighty years after its saw the big screen, the film is still very effective, and ranks among the genres finest works. With stunning performances from its cast, the film occur during the First World War, and it shows us the chaos, and considering the fact that this was made in 1930, it's an impressive feat in filmmaking, as what we have here is a picture that captures the fear and agony of combat, and it's a well made movie for its time, and it still looks great after all these years. This film is the definitive WWI picture, with great direction, well done effects and memorable performances. This is a flawless picture, one that stands among the most powerful genre pictures ever made as well as a defining cinematic accomplishment.

A film that remains one of the most powerful screen comments on the horrors of war…

The performances are also exemplary, but it is primarily a film of great moments -- the climactic sequence of the young conscript reaching out for a butterfly in the sun -- that, once seen, are never forgotten.
