The film follows the life of German soldier Paul Bäumer (Felix Kammerer), who, after enlisting in the Army with his friends, finds himself confronting the harrowing realities of war, shattering their hopes of becoming heroes. 

Critics and viewers lauded the WW1 epic as ‘one of the greatest war movies ever made’ as they described it as an ‘utterly gut wrenching’ film.

Many people compared it to 2019’s war drama 1917 and 2015’s The Revenant, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, insisting it was better than both of the epics. 

On Rotten Tomatoes, the German-language film secured an impressive audience score of 90 per cent while the critics’ Tomatometer score was 92 per cent.

It is a harrowing account of the realities of WW1 based on his own experiences in the German army and largely takes place on the trenches of the Western Front. 

The German-language film sees Austrian actor Felix Kammerer take the lead as Paul Bäumer and it also stars Inglourious Basterds star Daniel Brühl.

The German epic anti-war film is based on the 1929 novel of the same name by Erich Maria Remarque – which was burnt by the Nazis when they rose to power. 

The original 1930 adaptation of the novel took home two Oscars, for Best Picture and Best Director, and was nominated in two other categories.

The novel was also brought to screen in another Hollywood movie in 1979, but the new movie marks the first German-language adaptation for the screen.
