War is something terrible!
4 September 2003 | by henk-sonnemansSee all my reviews

The title of this movie says it all! War is something terrible. A movie about friendship that ends. A woman that will loose her lover and that all in the dramatic way we know from the early silent movies. I saw this movie with life-music, maybe that makes some difference. But I think it is a beautiful early anti-war movie.
