WOODEN CROSSES (Les Croix de Bois) (1932) * with switchable English subtitles *

Raymond Bernard, Roland Dorgelès (novel) | 1 more credit » Stars: Pierre Blanchar, Gabriel Gabrio, Charles Vanel

In France's answer to Germany's All Quiet on the Western Front, young and patriotic student Demachy joins the French Army in 1914 to defend his country against German aggression; but it isn't long before he and his comrades experience the terrifying and unending horrors of trench warfare in Champagne. And it is there that the continual erection of wooden crosses to the war's dead hits home with the grisly realization that the men fighting are little more than cannon fodder for the insatiable maws of Death.

DVD-R is in French with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 113 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
