A poignant love story centered around the lives of three young, disillusioned returned soldiers caught up in the turmoil of post World War I Germany. Their close friendship is strengthened by their shared love for the same woman who is dying of tuberculosis. Careful self-censorship by M-G-M lessened the films impact as an indictment of Nazi Germany, yet despite the Hollywood makeover of Remarque's novel (he also wrote 'All Quiet on the Western Front') the film still conveys the haunting sense of hopelessness and waste felt by a generation of youth indelibly marked by the war and its consequences
