Directed by Edward Berger, the film is a new take on the classic 1929 novel by Erich Maria Remarque. The film tells the story of a young German soldier, played by Felix Kammerer, on the Western Front of World War I. Paul and his comrades experience first-hand how the initial euphoria of war turns into desperation and fear as they fight for their lives, and each other, in the trenches. Daniel Brühl, Sebastian Hülk, Albrecht Schuch, and Anton von Lucke also star.
Berger directs from a screenplay by Lesley Paterson and Ian Stokell. The Netflix film is the first German-made adaptation of the novel.
