A modern masterpiece…one of the best acted films produced to date
First off, If you haven’t yet seen this film, I recommend you do so ASAP. But, considering A Midnight Clear is underrated and relatively unknown, anyone reading this message has most likely already seen the film. Not only is the acting brilliant and emotionally charged, the premise is excellent as well. Set in 1944, this small intelligence group is forced to report on any pending, incoming German attacks, something that turns to mystery and evidently reveals the true horrors of war. Combined with an innovative director and a wonderfully tragic score, I must say A Midnight Clear is one of my favorite war movies, second only to Glory in my opinion. Others on my list would include Apocalypse Now, Full Metal Jacket, Braveheart, Black Hawk Down, The Bridge Over the River Kwai and Schindler’s List (if that can be considered a war film). To say that this movie tops all those others is an incredible testament to its greatness.
Modern WWII Classic!
A Midnight Clear (1991) – Director: Keith Gordon The story is set in 1944 France as an American Intelligence squad locates a German platoon wishing to surrender rather than die in Germany’s final war offensive. The two opposing forces put aside their differences and spend Christmas night together before circumstances turn awry and both sides are forced to resume their hostilities. It’s hard to see yourself in your enemy’s eyes and pull the trigger and this film shows that fact simply and quietly. The film is beautifully photographed and directed as if being talked to by a wise old grand parent.
Starring Kevin Dillon, Ethan Hawke, Gary Sinise, Ayre Gross and Peter Berg among others, the film is a rare offering harkening back to the days of the late ’30s WW I film The Grand Illusion. (Color)
