A love story and a war story in equal parts, this tells of a young man who falls desperately in love with his boss's wife. When he later becomes an officer during the First World War, his passion and love for her sustain him through the horrors of trench warfare and the Battle of the Somme. An epic story beautifully filmed, as well as educational the story of the WWI tunnels is bloodcurdling.
