Watched this one last night.

Three days in the life of an infantry company in the British Army March 19, 20, 21, 1918.

It reminded me a little of Dunkirk, as there was little dialog (I could understand ... for some reason they were whispering a lot ... :D ). And often there was sad dramatic music playing. It wasn't as "spaced out" as Dunkirk, but at least of hint of the same.

The character development is WAY better than Dunkirk and you can actually keep track of some of the players.

The company commander who definitely is worn out. The platoon leaders seem to be a bit more stoic. the Sergeant Major seems fine. A new officer shows up. He volunteered to go to this company.

I won't spoil it ... but I would recommend it. Not a movie I would watch 10 more times. But I'd watch it again, some day.

If I had to give it stars, I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5. I think it has a 4 out of 5 on Amazon Prime. I'm probably taking away half a star because there were technical issue with the way the artillery was represented :)
