War Through A Horse's Eye

It's a different war story. It's a different horse's story; a miraculous one actually - a War Horse.

I thought it would be just like any other war-themed and over-stretched drama movie. Or something like a feel-good movie with a care-for-animals story.

It was more than that.

War Horse

Director Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks Pictures’ “War Horse” is a tale of a man and his horse bound by loyalty, hope, and sacrifice, set against rural England and Europe during the First World War.  

War Horse Movie
"'War Horse' is an epic adventure for audiences of all ages.“War Horse” begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets...The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse...“War Horse” is one of the great stories of friendship and war..."
Led by young lad and horse tamer named Albert (Jeremy Irvine), Joey (the horse) found a good master , and friendship, that survives through a war. The movie continues to reveal the painful realities of war and it's effects on family, relationships, and the lives of soldiers and ordinary men of all ages. It also showed the important role of horses and the abusive treatment they receive in war time.
"War, takes away everything, from everyone," says one of the antagonists.
