Synopsis

A group of German schoolboys, inspired by their professor to fight for their country, enlist in World War I. The film documents their descent into war in graphic detail, from the everyday reality of trench warfare to starvation and butchery. The film tracks the boys in training, battle, and eventually their untimely deaths.

Description

Based on Erich Maria Remarque's timeless anti-war novel, this moving film follows a group of German recruits during World War I as they make their personal journey from patriotism to disillusionment. Shot on an epic scale with an impressive budget of $1.25 million, the film's realism and visual art created a sensation. Author (and war veteran) Remarque was forced by the reaction to the film to relocate from his native Germany to the United States. The recently restored version includes the entire "Last Supper" sequence and removes the annoying music added to later releases. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Writing. Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director.

Notes

"All Quiet on the Western Front" received much attention for being one of the largest scale talkies to date (1930). It cost Universal $1.2 million to make. Copyright 1930 Universal Pictures Corporation. Renewed 1958 Universal Pictures Company. Rated BBFC PG by the British Board of Film Classification.
