Les croix de bois

Raymond Bernard Frankrike, 1932

Stephen's rating of the film Wooden Crosses

This is just one of the best war films ever. It stands out as an example of how effective early visual effects could be. The film is a wonderful anti-war statement as well and way ahead of its time. I am so glad Criterion/Eclipse put out the Bernard set because this and his version of Les Miserables are just brilliant. 'Wooden Crosses' easily went into my top 20 of all time after the first time I saw it.
