This film from 1930 follows a group of German schoolboys, talked into enlisting at the beginning of World War I by their jingoistic teacher. The story is told entirely through the experiences of the young German recruits and highlights the tragedy of war through the eyes of individuals. As the boys witness death and mutilation all around them, any preconceptions about ‘the enemy’ and the ‘rights and wrongs’ of the conflict disappear, leaving them angry and bewildered. The film is not about heroism but about drudgery and futility and the gulf between the concept of war and the actuality.

IT’S FILM WEEK! After winning a string of major awards including the 2009 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Departures went on to enchant audiences around the world. It centres on a young cellist who loses his job and finds himself reluctantly working in the funeral industry, knowing he will be shunned by many people, including friends and family. From this unpromising start, Departures blossoms into a lyrical, eye-opening film you are unlikely to ever forget.
Come along out of the cold this Thursday night for a touching film and stay after for supper and a discussion.
