I was a little bit afraid when I went to seee this film.
I was worried that I would leave the theatre with mascara all over my face from crying!
But it wasn't like that at all.
( after all it is based on a children's book )
It showed the horrors of war without the graphic detail of Corporal Ryan
so that you could see the horrible, unimaginable conditions in the trenches of the Somme,
admire the bravery of very young men in a battle charge with fixed bayonettes
without confronting gory detail ...
( How glad am I that my son has not been involved in this type of horror.)
and woven into that is the story of a horse - and what a horse he is !
I thoroughly enjoyed it.
(and only cried a little bit !)
Here's the Trailer for you yo watch.
