More Details

Synopsis:
A soldier emerges from World War I so horribly wounded and disfigured -- his legs and arms amputated, his sight and face destroyed -- that he wishes only to die.

Reviews:
"[I]t's a delicate and lyrical affair, full of evocative and stylised flashbacks. There are some wonderful scenes of Bottoms with Jason Robards..." - 09/01/2004 Sight and Sound, p.96-7


"[D]riven by an acute, angry intelligence. Hard to forget." - 09/01/2004 Uncut, p.142


"Trumbo spares viewers the full gruesomeness of his physical state, but hides nothing of the mental toll....The film refuses to treat war as an abstraction..." - 04/08/2009 A.V. Club
