Wooden Crosses

We commemorate the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War with a little-known-in-America French masterpiece that is often called that country’s All Quiet on the Western Front. The film follows a patriotic student as he idealistically joins the French army, then experiences the harrowing, unheroic realities of trench warfare. Battle scenes from this WWI classic were repurposed in John Ford's The World Moves On (1934) and Howard Hawks' The Road to Glory (1936). With Pierre Blanchar, Charles Vanel. Antonin Artaud, et al.

110 min. Subtitles. Format to be determined.
