I can’t remember the last time I have been so moved by a story. This movie has marked me. The juxtaposition of the worst that humanity can come up with (war) and the best (greater love/brotherhood/sacrifice) is beyond impacting. My admiration for that generation has gone through the roof.
The contrast to my own situation, my own problems, my own selfishness put many things into perspective. I have so far to go. I have so much to be thankful for.
The title comes from Shakespeare’s historical play Henry V. The invented words of Henry V just before the battle of Agincourt (25 October 1415):
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother.
