This film, based on Hemingway’s great novel, tells the story of two non-combatants in WWI, who fall in love, but are separated by the war. Never in the film is there any evidence that the war is good for anybody. The film was Oscar nominated for best picture and won Oscars for best cinematography and best sound. This film was released a short time before the Hays Code would inflict great damage to the art of film making. The subject matter of this film, although totally benign in the 21st century, would have had to have many ridiculous cuts related to the beautiful love relationship.

Other than his writing style, Hemmingway's stories never were that great ...

Our poor grandparents had to watch these kinds of movies?! no wonder their lives were so short...the whole movie you hear sound of blasting bombs as well as constant moving away from one's lover...damn war mongers!...and this female actress looks so much like a snapping turtle!

I didn't particularly feel like reading any of Ernest Hemingway's books, so I decided to watch the movie versions. I am glad I only wasted a couple of hours watching this movie and not who knows how many weeks reading the book. It is full of people who make bad choices and keep lovers apart. If you like stories about the human condition, you might enjoy this depressing look at life.
