This gripping story of a young German soldier on the Western Front of World War I is the first German adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s 1927 classic anti-war novel.

The story flits back and forth between two differing perspectives of the same event. Firstly there's Paul (Felix Kammerer) and his comrades, who experience first-hand how the initial euphoria of war turns into desperation and fear as they fight for their lives, and each other, in the trenches. Meanwhile, in the relative comfort and warmth of elegant war offices, a government minister (played by Daniel Brühl) attempts to convince his colleagues for Germany to surrender before even more lives on the Front are inevitably lost.

An impassioned, visually arresting film (which is also Germany's official submission for this year's Oscar's®), All Quiet on the Western Front is a brutal and shockingly honest depiction of the horror and trauma of war, and the tolls that it takes on the young men who fight.
