Director Peter Jackson has made a remarkable and riveting documentary made to commemorate the centennial of the Armistice after being approached by the British Imperial War Museum with 600 hours of raw and never before seen footage from anonymous British troops on WWI’s Western Front. He digitally remastered and colored the original footage, and using forensic lip-reading, recreated the men’s words, while adding commentary from archival BBC interviews of British veterans from the 1960s. This is a remarkable cinematic tribute to the sacrifice of a generation, now gone, who fought the war to end all wars.
