An offbeat and compelling blending of archival war footage, poetic narration (including an opening segment with Laurence Olivier), and the classical oratorio of Benjamin Britten, this boldly realized film written and directed by Derek Jarman ("Caravaggio") offers a look at the human faces and suffering behind warfare. The result is a potent condemnation of mankind's penchant for combat. Tilda Swinton, Sean Bean co-star. 92 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English; photo gallery; theatrical trailer.
