Story


"Testament of Youth" is a powerful story of love, war and remembrance, based on the First World War memoir by Vera Brittain, which has become the classic testimony of that war from a woman's point of view. A searing journey from youthful hopes and dreams to the edge of despair and back again, it's a film about young love, the futility of war and how to make sense of the darkest times.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film shows a dreamy drift towards pathos, which is valid enough as an emotional register. But the passion and rage somehow don't come into focus..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
“..a best of British effort in every respect, this handsome production consistently impresses..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]
“..as a film, Testament of Youth glimmers with sadness, but also the apprehension of sadness..”
by Tim Robey [Daily Telegraph]
