I think Brad Pitt and the whole family did an excellent job of filming this one.
What a messed up tragedy!
I like how the movie makes you feel like you've lived a whole lifetime with these characters.
Actually the main part of it all only covers about 7 years of their lives.
Poor Alfred, he follows all the rules, man's and God's, and they all loved Tristan more.
I didn't forgive Tristan for leaving Susanna when she miscarried their baby, and then he took off overseas and everything.
Anyway, the WWI parts were great as well. I wished there were more WWI movies. Did the Germans accept bans on chemical weapons in WWII? I'd have thought that they could have instantly killed everyone at Utah and Omaha Beaches if they'd deployed gas canisters at Normandy. Were our guys supplied with gas masks just in case? That's something I can't tell from Band of Brothers or Saving Private Ryan.
Hitler didn't seem like he'd have the decency to follow any rules of war.
