Lo valioso del filme no tiene que ver con el doble melodrama ni el género bélico que vislumbra para el final de la película. "De aquí a la eternidad" es la crónica de dos románticos, aquellos que han contemplado en la vida del ejército su oficio y vida. Está sin embargo el desencanto, la frustración, una que se escapa mediante el alcoholismo, el amor furtivo. El final es trágico para todos. Hay un discurso antibélico
Winner of 8 Academy Awards including picture and director. Post war picture looking at a company's operation and their soap opera like personal dramas leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbour. Some iconic sequences with some classic performances to match especially Lancaster, Clift, Kerr and Borgnine all whose performances seem to have more resonance than those given by Reed and Sinatra who won Oscars for theirs.
A melodrama for men. In spite of the reputation this film has for being one of the great romance films, the biggest takeaway for me was the apparent male to male camaraderie, at points very egregiously almost homoerotic. But I guess that's the army.
One of my favorites - an all-star cast, particularly swoon-worthy Clift and passionate Sinatra. Great, dramatic plots that never push the envelope into melodrama. One of the most amazing things about this movie is that you get so wrapped up in the drama and romance of the characters that you completely forget that you are watching a movie set in Pearl Harbor in 1941.
Votes 0 From Here to Eternity (1953) Genre: Drama Posted on 12/24/11 10:01 PM The sort of apparently ego-less ensemble of major talent assembled to tell an important story that the Hollywood studio system at its best could pull off with aplomb. All the parts come together magnificently here to make a great classic film.
"Nobody ever lies about being lonely." One of the greatest single lines ever delivered in cinema by one of its most fascinating and empathic actors. I love everything about this movie, this story, the characters, and everyone involved. My number one favourite film of all time.
