A Farewell to Arms
 
 
Directed by Frank Borzage, USA 1932
88 mins. English dialogue
 
Summary:
 

Described by Time Out as "not only the best film version of a Hemingway novel, but also one of the most thrilling visions of the power of sexual love that even Borzage ever made ... no other director created images like these, using light and movement like brushstrokes, integrating naturalism and a daring expressionism in the same shot. This is romantic melodrama raised to its highest degree." 

This heart-rending romance between an ambulance driver (Gary Cooper) and a nurse (Helen Hayes) during WW1 will leave you weeping.

 
What the Critics say:
 

"Cooper was never more handsome, and the chemistry between him and Hayes glows from the screen."  (Philip Kemp - Total Film)
