Les Croix de Bois (Wooden Crosses). 1932. France. Directed by Raymond Bernard. In French; English subtitles. 110 min.
With Pierre Blanchar, Gabriel Gabrio, Charles Vanel, Antonin Artaud. Bernard was a major director (The Miracle of the Wolves, Les Miserables) whose work here is comparable to (and forms something of a pacifist trench-based trio with) Lewis Milestone’s All Quiet on the Western Front and G. W. Pabst’s Westfront 1918.
