Germany’s ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ wins Best International Film Oscar english movie news – Usky News

Germany’s “All Quiet on the Western Front,” a World War One epic with nine Oscar nominations this year, won the Academy Award for best international film on Sunday.
The Netflix Inc. film, directed by Edward Berger, depicts the horrors of trench warfare through the eyes of a young man who initially wanted to join the fight. It is the first German-language adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque’s 1928 novel, which was also made into a Best Picture-winning film in 1930.

Accepting his award, Berger thanked the film’s young star, Felix Kammerer, who joined him on stage.

“It was your first film, and you carried us on your shoulders like it was nothing,” Berger said.

“All Quiet on the Western Front” tells the story of a young man who goes to war, poisoned by right-wing political nationalist propaganda, thinking it is an adventure, and war is anything but an adventure, producer Malte Grunert said in his acceptance speech for Best Film at the BAFTA Awards last month.

The film “is in engaging dialogue with not only its source material, but the long history of war and cinema about war and atrocities,” wrote Sight & Sound in its review, adding that the film “1917,” like Films also have debt. “Saving Private Ryan” and “Black Hawk Down.”
