A devastating story of war and a generation destroyed. In 1914 a group of German schoolboys, idealistic and inflamed with youthful patriotism, set off to fight in the "glorious" war. During their brutal basic training disenchantment begins. Then, boarding a train for the front, they see the wounded being rushed back to the hospitals, and they begin to grasp the grim reality of war. Amongst them is Paul Baumer (Richard Thomas), whose preconceptions are shattered upon witnessing the horror of life at the front.

This is the second film version (the first was made in 1930) of Erich Maria Remarque's classic novel.

a classic film finally released in hi def. But why not release the 2 & a half hour tv version which was shown by bbc 2 in 1986. Seems like a missed opportunity.

It is not entirely beyond the realms of reason why someone would want to remake the 1930 classic: the chance to do it in colour, make it more graphic, etc. So it is a little hard to understand why this has been done as a TV movie where a curious blanket of blandness settles across the whole enterprise. If anything, The original was much more graphic than this, much rawer, much more intense. The strength of the material pulls it through and Thomas is an engaging if rather inert lead but the bar was set too high for this to come anywhere near close.
