A fantastic B&W Movie

If you are expecting lots of explosions and etc, you are in the wrong place. If you are looking for an interesting discussion of the impacts of war on people far removed from it, you might be in the right place. The movie is slow by modern standards, but I think the pacing makes the movie just right.


The final grind of humanity after the final war. Radiation is coming and no one can do anything to fix it. "There is still time brother"!
