    I love war movies, but this movie is brutal. War is terrible and forces humans to do inhuman things.
    It was depressing and cruel. A very well made movie about a place and age you dont know so much about.
    (black and white when I was expecting color movie and not the regular action war movie we are used to)

    Worth seeing!
