The Best Years of Our Lives
The Best Years of Our Lives the film that unfortunately for some may merely be that film they say "what's that" when they see what beat It's A Wonderful Life for Best Picture in 1946. Well that's unfortunate because it deserved its success, and is one of the best films to take the top prize. The film details WW II veterans difficulties when coming back from the war through three stories. The film is terrific in actually the unassuming approach it takes to the material. There are some intense moments in there, but that's only part of the film. It's just as well is a film that just is attempting to capture everyday life of a moment in time, which it seems to do marvelously. The emotional payoff of each story is well earned, as it paints such a moving depiction of the way life goes on even after such a life changing experience as war has interrupted the flow of it all.
