All Quiet On The Western Front' DVD (1930), New & Sealed.
In the First World War, a group of students are convinced by their teacher to join the German Army and fight in the war. They witness and participate with the worst that a war means: deaths, wounds, starvation, stupidity, brutality. This excellent movie is amazing: the realism and cruelty of the scenes are remarkable. It almost looks like a documentary. And it was shot in 1930, where the resources were very few when comparing with the special effects of the present days. The message of this masterpiece, although not learnt by most of the governors of our planet, is very deep and touching. Strongly recommended for all audiences.
