Synopsis

A tale of the love between ambulance driver Lt. Henry and Nurse Catherine Barkley during World War I. The action takes place in Italy and the two fall in love during the war and will stop at nothing to be together. The film also analyses Lt. Henry’s feelings on war and the purpose of fighting.

Our take

What a strange and utterly magical combo: the snub-nosed manly prose of Hemingway meeting the deeply sincere erotic romanticism of undervalued Hollywood master Frank Borzage. Starring a dreamily handsome Gary Cooper, this tops our list of all time great war films, pre-Code pictures, and romances.
