‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ (2022) on Netflix

All Quiet on the Western Front has a new full-color version, bringing the classic book to life—and showing an even more devastating view of the harrowing realities of the Great War.

Erich Maria Remarque, a German veteran and journalist, wrote the 1928 book and was forced into exile in Switzerland for criticizing the war and the government.

“This German world bestseller is able to convey the inhuman terror of war, perhaps more impressively than any other literary work,” Edward Berger, director of the new Netflix adaptation, said in a statement. “For me, creating its first German film adaptation is one of the most exciting challenges of all.”
