Aro Recommended Oh! What a Lovely War

 

UK 1969, 144 minutes
Dir. Richard Attenborough
Rating: [M]
Genres: Classics, Drama / War, Musical

 

Aroview: Powerful anti-war musical adapted from the play by Charles Chilton, which depicts the mass blunder of WWI through the experiences of the poor Smith family, whose sons all meet their end in the trenches. But rather than relying on violence to convey the senselessness of war, dir. Attenborough orchestrates song, dance, absurd comedy and wit into a wholly satisfying masterpiece of grand irony.
