The War Requiem

The War Requiem

1988, Musical
This experimental film synthesizes the poetry of Wilfred Owen, wordless reenactments of events from Owen's life, stock footage of 20th-century wars and music by composer Benjamin Britten. During World War I, British soldier Owen (Nathaniel Parker) is mortified by the examples of cruelty that surround him in the trenches. He combats these terrifying images by maintaining hope in his love for an army nurse (Tilda Swinton). But he also begins to accept his fate as another battlefield sacrifice.
