All Quiet On The Western Front - the video

The copyright was lost on this video, so its in the public domain now. Lucky for you guys!

In the first 20 minutes of the film...look at:
-the class differences [who is working class? who has gone to school?]
-the age differences between Kat and the younger boys who just enlisted,
**this B&W film follows the book best.

Recall the author uses "en media res" --when something starts in the middle of an event. Your mind is expected to catch up to fill-in what happened before we are brought in...the author also uses the literary device "flashback".
