About the film:

One of the most powerful antiwar films ever made.

During World War I, commanding officer General Broulard orders his subordinate, General Mireau, to attack a German trench position, offering a promotion as an incentive. Though the mission is foolhardy to the point of suicide, Mireau commands his own subordinate to plan the attack. When it ends in disaster, General Mireau demands the court-martial of three random soldiers in order to save face.

A reminder both of [Kubrick’s] extraordinary formal virtuosity and his powers as a satirist.”

—Geoffrey Macnab, Independent (UK)
