All Quiet on the Western Front
A young soldier faces profound disillusionment in the soul-destroying horror of World War I. Together with several other young German soldiers, he experiences the horrors of war, such evil of which he had not conceived of when signing up to fight. They eventually become sad, tormented, and confused of their purpose.
@Marguerite Halversen It's too quiet on the western front. I'll get those nukes going again. If we all have them, we'll get rid of ISIS. #TrumpBookReports24 minutes ago

Variety Staff A harrowing, gruesome, morbid tale of war.
Jonathan Rosenbaum Deserves its reputation as a classic.
Geoff Andrew The film's strength now derives less from its admittedly powerful but highly simplistic utterances about war as waste, than from a generally excellent set of performances (Ayres especially) and an almost total reluctance to follow normal plot structure.
Mordaunt Hall Messrs. Milestone, Abbott and Anderson in this film have contributed a memorable piece of work to the screen.
