The war separated the lovers. The hero, having gone through all the horrors of battle and surviving, made an oath to tell people the truth about what he saw. A. Hans makes extensive use of multiple exposures, imprinting into the frame, and dividing the frame horizontally. He resorted to the expressive possibilities of cinema in order to most reasonably argue his thoughts: the gloomy shadows of death over fields dug in trenches, dead soldiers rose from their graves, ghosts were approaching the audience, as if demanding an answer from the living - why did they die?
