What is the story of All Quiet on the Western Front about?
All Quiet on the Western Front is a Netflix adaption of German veteran infantryman and acclaimed author Erich Maria Remarque’s classic World War I novel of the same name. It was written in 1929 by Remarque and is still taught in schools around the world, owing to its sombre depiction of the futility of war.
According to Variety’s article on the film’s synopsis,
“The plot revolves around youths Paul Baumer and his pals Albert and Muller, who voluntarily serve in the German army, riding a wave of patriotic zeal that quickly fades as they meet the grim realities of life on the front.” Paul’s ideas about the adversary and the conflict’s rights and wrongs quickly collapse. However, as the clock approaches the Armistice, Paul must continue fighting until the finish, for no other reason than to satisfy the upper brass’ wish to conclude the war on a German assault.”
