I was actually looking forward to this film as the music is great. The film is appalling. That’s being tactful. The stilted images and poses are ridiculous. About 2/3rd way through there’s quiite a moving section when the victims of other wars are shown – the only section touching on Britten’s purpose which is to point out the pity and pointlessness of war. The camp scene in the chapel with a gay crucifixion is laughably bad.
