CINEMA CYCLE — WESTFRONT
Four German infantrymen end up on the front line just months before the end of World War I. Westfront, a masterpiece adapted from Ernst Johannsen's novel, is presented from the German point of view. It shows the horrors and ravages of war and the ubiquity of death from all angles, with a resolutely pacifist tone. Three years after its release, the film was banned by Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi Minister of Propaganda.
Film echoing Wozzeck.
