As far as war movies go, I enjoyed this heart-warming story of a young man from Devon, England, (Albert) and his love for a horse (Joey) that is taken to war. We see the struggles of this fine animal through a 4-year war that leaves millions dead. What we see through this film is the use of horses to win a war through bitter ends.
The bucolic countryside we see contrast sharply with the scenes of the soldiers in trenches and the bitter fighting. Some of the battles were epic and awe-inspiring!
When Albert as a wounded young soldier is reunited with Joey, we cannot help but feel moved. This is a story of love, patience, devotion and faithfulness among humans and horses. It’s a film worth watching with the family. ~~LMMolina
