Gance's scathing denouncement of World War I was filmed in part on actual battlefields and appeared in theaters only five months after the Armistice was signed. It was at the forefront of "a new breed of films that addressed war issues in a more sophisticated and realistic way" (Tami Williams, Germaine Dulac: A Cinema of Sensations).
