(500) Films of Empire - Day 211

185 - Paths Of Glory - 4 stars
A cracking film that is half war film/half courtroom drama, examining some of the absurdities of war, as Colonel Dax defends 3 soldiers facing a court marshall on charges of cowardice after a suicidal mission ordered by their commanding officer (a wonderfully slimy George Macready) ends in retreat.
A film that is set in France, all the characters are French, but the fact that no one even attempts a French accent isn't even an issue. Much better than using Allo Allo style comedy accents.

Days remaining - 154 Films remaining - 197
