Hello

There is a movie that I cannot remember it is name. It was a black and white movie, probably American production and actors, and it deals with the psychological meanings of war. It tells a story about American soldier feelings through the WWII. I remember he was in Paris when it was liberated and there was that scene when there was a French girl in a pup that he liked, but she could not talk and stay with him because other soldiers pay more.

there was also that scene where one soldier was going in a mission, then he find a lonely woman staying in her big 2 floors house, her family escaped but she have to say for a reason i cannot remember, the house was in a field, then that soldier stayed the night with her in her bed, just because she was really afraid to sleep alone that night with all the airplanes sounds.

And I also would like to know other movies against war.

Thanks for your help

    The film you are referring to was called THE VICTORS. It was Produced and Directed in 1963 by Carl Foreman and starred George Peppard, Eli Wallach, George Hamilton, Melina Mercouri, Jeannes Moreau, Peter Fonda and Vince Edwards amongst others. The Russian soldier in the last scene was played by Albert Finney.

    Two personal favorites of mine, of this type of film, are Breaker Morant (1980) and Stanley Kubricks Paths of Glory from 1957.

    Here are some sites that list films of an anti-war nature that you might find useful
