Through the tone of the classroom, I assumed I was alone in my feeling of contempt. The film didn’t evoke a sort of sadness; in all honesty I didn’t feel anything. I was more concerned about the feelings of the people featured in the film than I was my own. I didn’t feel bad because the film didn’t confirm my pre thought image of WW1. Before watching the film, I imagined WW1 as very serious, violent and depressing. This thought of war was shaped by me by the previous teachings, the tone of the explanation of World War 1 further instilled in my thinking the seriousness of the topic. This was codirected by the film particularly by the narrations of the soldiers. They explained the war as such as a core memory, the tone was softer and talked about in a calm tone. The soldiers did not talk about the war in such a way I would talk about my personal sad memories. I would talk about my sad personal memories in a quieter tone and avoid making jokes. Towards the beginning of the film, I had no genuine instrest in film, nothing resonated with me. As the film progressed, I started feeling more connected to the characters and began gaining empathy. My interest in the film was only through empathy and not interest in the topic of WW1 itself.
