Remembrance Day truly remembered: groundbreaking computer technology brings century-old, hand-cranked WWI film footage to new life in a haunting war depiction never viewable before. These long-dead soldiers speak directly to us in modernized colour and full life. Even their on-screen voices have been creatively reproduced, with appropriate regional accents, through the use of professional lip-readers. Director Jackson dedicated the film to his grandfather, who fought in WWI, making it one of the most empathetic portraits of war ever created and a powerful tribute to every veteran, anywhere. His grandfather would be proud.
