World War II has been one of the favorite subjects of writers and directors. Numerous films have been made on this topic, and a lot more are in the row. For instance, take the example of the veteran German author Erich Maria Remarque, whose unforgettable work, All Quiet on the Western Front, has been in people’s hearts forever. Just like the book, two adaptations of the film are classics in themselves.
The first adaptation was released in 1930, and the second in 1979. Both films left a huge impact. And it’s said that the classics never get old. So, on the same link, Netflix is bringing you a newer version of this legendary story by Erich Maria Remarque.

The scenes definitely look amazing! In Edward Berger’s words, “Remarque’s novel is almost 100 years old, but it could just as well have been written today.”
