War films

War films are not always showing the war per se - often the main theme is the influence of the conflict on lives of people involved, but also their families and friends. War is seldom a local thing - the trauma, the pain, the death they put their mark on people from around the world.

Best war films guide

War films show the picture of the war from different angles, but always based on a stories of people put in extreme conditions. War draws the worst of people, but also the best to surface - the decisions that are made during the war are always difficult and in those conditions people show who they really are and what they stand for. In a way war films show the truth about us - only in extreme conditions we can say who we are, and there is no more extreme conditions than during the war.
