-For Whom the Bell Tolls
'd like to add  an italian tv series based on the book "heart" (Cuore) . The serie was made by Luigi Comencini.
Since the book originally was about young men who go to school in the last years of 1800, Comencini made a story about that but also about them during their adult life, in the years of 1ww.The return of Enrico at home, while he is fighting at war, and his discover of a total different world, which nothing knows about what it is happening.
I really suggest everybody to see it  once. Cause 1ww was the first modern war, without the personal contct between two soldiers, but with catastrphic weapons
The movie is super also for taste italian atmosphere during the end of 1800 , here the link of the opening where you can see kids but also they became soldiers:

The book is my favourite book, so I would censore everyone who should destroy its message, but i must admit  that still now i cry for the emotion eveytime i see this tv serie, that i saw when i was at elementary school on tv.
I hope you enjoy it too!
Thanks for your attention!

thank you so very much for the reply! Only I believe for whom the bell tolls is a story that takes place during the spanish civil war, isn't it? Cuore is one of my favourite mini-series ever, and I'd love to find a DVD, if you have any idea where I could pls contact me!

also, I do not know if someone knows something about ''le diable au corps''
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038476/

the book is also one of my favourites (reminds me of ''summer of '42)
also http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067803/

thanx again and welcome to the forum DIANE!

PS: I just realise we all forgot about ''a slave of love''

I am directing Journey's End by R.C. Sheriff (1928), the first major play  written to deal with World War I. Incredibly moving, it is set in a dugout on the trenches of the front line. It was made into a movie in 1930, directed by James Whale and starring Colin Clive, the same combo who later made Frankenstein.

I saw War Horse in London this past summer. I'd like to add my recommendation to Alixz's. The most astounding staging I have seen of anything in years --- you will be in shreds by the end. I was, anyway.

I cried so hard by Intermission that the other audience members were staring up at me.  I was in the last row of the orchestra right by the lighting board in the Vivian Beaumont Theater at Lincoln Center in NYC.

People were asking me if I was all right.  I was fine, but I was so moved that I just couldn't hold it in.

The staging was some of the best I have ever seen.  They did so much with so little.  I imagine that the movie, when it comes out, will have much more in scenery.  I hope it doesn't take away from the excellent use of the puppets as I am afraid that puppets won't be used for the movie.

I was also impressed by the illusion of the trenches and "No Man's Land" on a stage.

All in all it was the very best and most moving World War I play I have yet to see.  The sound was also impressive.

You couldn't have been the only one crying! The entire London audience was a soggy mess by the time the show ended! And no, they won't be using the puppets for the movie, but it looks as though it will be as wonderful in a different way. Have you read the book? Very enjoyable as well.

Went to see the new release of the movie War Horse today.  It was a wonderful interpretation of the book and stage play.

While the story line was changed in some places drastically from the play, the movie stands on its own and is well worth seeing.

I actually liked some of the changes and know that, for a larger movies audience, it makes sense to have changed some of the characters and enlarged on others.

However, the story of the horse Joey who goes to war is still the same story and his young master's fight to find him and bring him home is just as well presented.

This movie salutes all of the "war horses" who fought and died in the Great War and also the men who rode them and fought and died with them. The Great War showed almost all armies that the day of the cavalry charge was over the minute the machine gun and the tank were invented.

Go see it. I don't think you will be sorry.

That was you! I knew someone from here had been to see the play, but I couldn't remember who!

Thanks for the review. I'm glad it compares favourably to the play - now I will go see it.
