Phew! Totally gripping and well acted but not something to enjoy. Very well done. Brilliantly acted – brought home the horror and futility. Not an easy watch, but the horrors of war were vividly told. Very good but very depressing. Didn’t spot any S. Wales locations. Superb acting and photography – sobering. Such powerful acting and harrowing film. Clever way of depicting the utter horror through the eyes of men we got to know. Gripping and graphic portrayal of the futility of war. Brilliant actng. Got the message across in no uncertain terms. Will we ever learn? Did not recognise any S. Wales landmarks. Constant feeling of stress throughout, which was its intent. Brilliant. Very powerful. Hard to watch such horrors. Cheerio! A tribute to the stiff upper lip!! By what criteria do we judge a film like that? Is it just me? Had problems to understand the dialogue. The film portrayed the futility of war and how unbearable life must have been in the trenches. The music enhanced the film too. The futility of war.
