Currently, we read and analyzed the poetry of the War poets. The events and horrors of the First World War  were reflected in cinema as well as in literature.  One of the strongest recently produced movies about World War I are А Very Long Engagement  and The Trench. Here are shorts clips from these films; the terrible, bloody battle scenes could be illustrations for many poems written  by Siegfried Sassoon, Edward Thomas, Wilfred Owen and other war poets.
