Synopsis : It was the War to end all wars - well not quite. For with the riochet of one bullet, the entire course of human history was changed forever... Now, for the first time, Academy Award inner Richard Attenborough's directoral debut is avaliable on DVD. Based on the stage musical of the same name, Oh! What a Lovely War features a stellar cast that includes Laurence Olivier, Ralph Richardson, John Mills, John Gielgud, Maggie Smith, Vanessa Redgrave, Ian Holm, Dirk Bogarde and Susannah York. By fusing the surreal with the factual, and juxtaposing savagely funny satire with quiet sorrow, Attenborough has created the oddest and most outstanding film ever made about the "game" that became World War One.(Synopsis taken from the DVD cover information).

This is a Parental Guidance-certificate film containing mild language and sex references.
