Perhaps the biggest surprise of this year’s Oscar announcement was ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT’s astonishing 9 nominations, including for Best Picture and Best International Picture—an amazing testament to this relatively unheralded movie’s greatness. Based on Eric Maria Remarque’s novel and made into a celebrated movie once before—Best Picture Winner for 1930, only Oscar’s third year in existence!— director Edgar Berger’s anti-war jolt is both timely and timeless. “A striking and harrowing portrait of the perils of nationalism, the chaos and madness of combat, and the lasting physical and psychological scars produced by both”—Nick Schager, The Daily Beast.

In German with English subtitles.
