In the west, nothing is new tells the gripping story of a young German soldier on the Western Front of World War I. Paul and his comrades discover how the initial euphoria of war turns to despair and fear as they fight for their lives, and each other, in the trenches.
The film, by director Edward Berger, is based on the world-famous bestseller of the same name (See on Amazon) by Erich Maria Remarque. The book is described as follows:
Considered by many to be the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece of the German experience in World War I.
“I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and senseless superficiality cast upon an abyss of pain…
“This is the testament of Paul Bäumer, who enlisted with his classmates in the German army during the First World War. They become soldiers with youthful enthusiasm.
“But the world of duty, culture and progress they had been taught shattered under the first bombardment from the trenches.
“Through years of vivid horror, Paul holds steadfast to one vow: to fight against the principle of hatred that pits meaningless young men of the same generation but wearing different uniforms against each other… if only he can get out alive. of the war.”
The film stars Felix Kammerer, Albrecht Schuch, Aaron Hilmer, Moritz Klaus, Edin Hasanovic, Adrian Grünewald, Thibault De Montalembert, Daniel Brühl and Devid Striesow.
The film was written by Berger, Lesley Paterson and Ian Stokell. It was produced by Malte Grunert, Daniel Dreifuss and Edward Berger.
