Verdun: Looking At History
Directed by Léon Poirier
Verdun: Looking At History
In order to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the end of World War I, Poirier recreated the battle of Verdun and inscribed in history the lives of symbolic characters from both sides of the front. Verdun, Looking at History was edited in three distinct parts (Might, Hell and Fate) and is an epic film of great emotional strength dedicated to "all the martyrs of the ugliest human passion that is war". His realistic masterpiece undoubtedly compares with King Vidor's The Big Parade and Lewis Milestone's All Quiet on the Western Front.
