The original ending to the charge sequence involved a much more complicated stunt than appears in the final film. The character of Wilkins was supposed to leap into a crater for protection only to be blown off course by a nearby explosion and land in rancid water. Actor/co-director Johan Earl performed the stunt, which required a timed use of explosives and stunt harnesses, but the cameras being used to film the scene were momentarily affected by the nearby explosion, and the shots were ruined. The final ending to the scene was created with digital effects. See more »
During the trench scene prior to going over the top, there is a modern pallet stood in the trench - this type was only made after the 1950's and much more commonly from the 1970's. See more »
Really enjoyed this film and I'm not much of a war person. It was a really refreshing take on a moment in our history, focusing on the very personal intimacy of mate-ship among soldiers, as opposed to the fanfare of explosions, gunfire and whiz bang visual effects.
It was nice to see a war film that peeked into the lives of the women left at home as well. When I think of the world wars and tragic loss of men involved in the conflict, I must admit I've never contemplated the hardships that women endured back on the home front.
This film offers a glimpse into what I've learnt to be an extremely common issue women were faced with whilst their men fought on the front lines. The limited options and primitive medical practices available to women back then are a frightening realisation of how helpless females must have felt living in that era. To have little to no control over their lives, let alone the ability to remedy bad choices is profoundly confronting.
A great take on a very sad era.
