The film is gritty, showing the horrors that man can inflict on fellow men in the name of war. Brad Pitt is excellent playing the tank commander, he gives the character depth and realism making for a believable account of the Battle in Europe. From shock to sadness, love to madness all emotions are encountered in the film.
