more please!By a customer , 12 Aug 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]A very moving film about the horrors of WW1, some of which were new to me, the tunnelers etc. The romance was a vital element, as it showed the power of love in such terrible conditions in the trenches. Love or the thoughts of a girlfriend held many soldiers from breaking in such foul conditions, where death seemed a certain outcome. I was surprised it had 2 parts, and I am even more surprised that there is more to come after series 1...I can't wait. It was well acted, and the sex was not offensive to me, and I thought was a natural under the war conditions.

Totally believableBy LoudPedal (37 reviews) from Maidstone , 17 May 2013Having been underground in the fighting tunnels in Chemin de Dames this was scary stuff. In fact, all the front line scenes were totally believable. The story itself is magniificently portrayed and acted. A must-see film with a bitter-sweet ending.
Very movingBy a customer , 11 May 2013Absolutely incredible- I loved this film and Eddie Redmayne is superb - moody, silent and mesmeric. I would thoroughly recommend this film to everyone!
A Beautiful DramaBy Barneybee (16 reviews) , 02 May 2013A moving film that highlighted the horrors of the 1st world war with a little bit of romance thrown in as well.
Absolutely stunningBy a customer , 07 Mar 2013I was a bit skeptic mainly because it is a mini series and made mostly for TV viewers. The war scenes compete even blockbuster war movies. The characters are well shaped and the dialogues beautiful. Drama and romance at its best for a fantastic night in.
Moving dramaBy a customer , 13 Feb 2013Very good film. The wife loved it. Both hard hitting with its depictions of WW1 and romantic, something for everyone.
