All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front (Edward Berger, 2022)

The title of Erich Maria Remarque's 1929 novel is Im Westen nichts Neues, which literally means 'in the West nothing new', but the distributors of this 2022 version of the story have retained the title of Lewis Milestone's 1930 film for theirs, as it is a well-known phrase. This is the first time it has been filmed in German; the German film's title is the same as that of the novel.

This is an anti-war film that I imagine is too much of a downer for me to want to watch it.
