“a vivid, meaningful portrayal” John Doyle Globe and Mail
I checked out this film after reading about it in the Globe and Mail. Here is the review by Globe and Mail critic John Doyle.
“Among the truly important programs is 21 Brothers (it’s on video-on-demand across Canada this weekend), made by Michael McGuire of Factory Film Studio in Kingston Ontario. The full-length movie is a “faux” documentary that chronicles Canada’s 21st Battalion as the troops prepare for the Battle of Flers-Courcelette on Sept. 15, 1916. The idea was to document the build-up to the battle in real time, and it was filmed in one long take – recognized by The Guinness Book of World Records recently as the “Longest Uncut Film in the world,” running 91 minutes and eight seconds. It’s not showy or preachy; it’s a vivid, meaningful portrayal of young soldiers and officers who are homesick, terrified and brave.”

Laughable and a disservice to the brave me who fought this actual battle!
There are good Canadian World War I movies. This isn’t it.
I know often Canadian films lack budgets, so perhaps this was a subject matter better left to a production that can afford the actors, the set design and so on. Excessive swearing in the ranks, waist deep trenches, actors bumbling their lines, no rain, no mud, no duck boards, the lack of bracing to hold up the walls, no apparent blood in sight when injuries strike, lack of following command, etc. make this just too is too much to swallow.
This would have been better served as a stage play.
