King & country by Joseph Losey( visu )
7 editions published between 1964 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 117 libraries worldwide
Der Kriegsgerichtsprozess gegen einen britischen Deserteur im Ersten Weltkrieg wird mit der erbarmungslosen Wirklichkeit der Schützengräben konfrontiert; das abschließende Todesurteil erweist sich als haltlos und inhuman: als Resultat einer militaristischen Logik, die aller Wirklichkeitsbezüge entfremdet ist. Eine dialogbetonte und formal brillant durchkomponierte Theaterverfilmung, getragen von pazifistischen Engagement. (Zoom) Wir schreiben das Jahr 1917: Der Soldat Hamp, der sich freiwillig für den Kriegsdienst in der britischen Armee gemeldet hat, ist der Schrecken des Grabenkrieges überdrüssig und begeht Fahnenflucht. Er wird jedoch gefangen und vom Kriegsgericht zum Tode verurteilt. Kurz vor der Hinrichtung betrinkt er sich mit seinen Kameraden. Den Gnadenschuss gibt ihm sein Verteidiger. Der leblose Körper versinkt im Schlamm. Schützengräben, Kasematten und schlammige unterirdische Gänge bilden den Schauplatz für Loseys Darstellung der Kriegsgräuel. (arte-online 11/2000)
