PATHS OF GLORY (1957)

Synopsis

The trenches of 1916. Aware that it will take a spectacular victory to revive his flagging reputation, General Broulard asks General Mireau, yearning for promotion, to launch a suicide attack against an impenetrable German position known as “The Anthill”. When it comes to the attack, the men fall like dominoes and their exhausted comrades refuse to advance…
As expected, the operation turns to massacre. Denying the absurdity of his strategy, General Mireau accuses the men of cowardice and calls for executions to set an example…

 

“The injustice is glaringly absurd, but Kubrick films it with cold-blooded frenzy. Whether it is the hellish conditions of the trenches or the military tribunal, his view is merciless.” – Jacques Morice, Télérama
