Episode 104. WWII: Drama

Continuing through our exploration of WWII, Alex and Jonathan turn the focus to the civilian level in Europe and look at the dramatic films Paisan (1946), Army of Shadows (1969), and Schindler’s List (1993). We discuss the uniqueness of films being made in the immediate aftermath of the war, the difference in tone between war drama films and war action films, and how drama films give us an intimate look into the lives and minds of those living through one of history’s greatest tragedies.
