backtrack; The battle of San Pietro (1945)

Dry, laconic and unflinching in its realism and eerily observant in details and tone, this World War II documentary raised controversy at first and wasn’t shown in public because of what was considered an anti-war message. Eventually redeemed and used in military training.

Ordinariness as strength. Maybe in my book.
