A great film indeed. The early scenes were uncannily reminiscent of the horrifying images in the contemporary 'what the butler saw'-style machines in the small but excellent private museum at Sanctuary Wood, Ypres (Hill 62). For instance, although, post -'War Horse', we recognise that tens of thousands of horses were killed on the front lines, it's no bad thing to remember just what that meant to a soldier forced to crawl amongst the bodies.
