They went with songs to the battle, they were young, 
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. 
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted; 
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: 
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. 
At the going down of the sun and in the morning 
We will remember them.
Laurence Binyon

 

They Shall Not Grow Old (2018) is out on Blu-ray and I am picking up a copy this weekend.  I did not have an opportunity to see it in its theatrical release, and I am eager to see Peter Jackson’s film necromancy of World War I soldiers.

  1. Have your tissues ready, Don.

    The only dialog in the film is from the soldiers themselves. A truly memorable experience.

  2. It is utterly brilliant. My eldest son and I saw it in the theatre and were stunned.

    A labor of love and a tribute to men who deserve to be remembered.

    Make sure to watch Jackson’s making-of commentary–it is absolutely fascinating. And even amusing in spots, as he describes his collection of WWI memorabilia. There’s also a moving discussion of his grandfather, a veteran whose physical health disintegrated after the War.
