HOW does the man still look like he's twenty-five? That is incredible.

Usually surgically? Although in this case I'm thinking no, because where would he find the TIME? Good genes, more likely. :)

Awwww, he sounds so abashed to have been given this award - but considering the amount of work that went into Paschendaele, he's certainly made the effort to earn it! And I do think that films like this foster an interest in history - certainly as much as a textbook does, for instance. Lovely piccie too: thanks for posting it up for us all :)

I know! :D I still don't understand where a whole section of fandom gets the idea that he's in love with himself. :/

I'm a history geek in the first place, but yeah, I think that people who would ordinarily never pick up a book on WWI might actually do it after seeing this kind of film.

I'm sure he's a man of very decided opinion, and obviously he has no problem with being the one in charge :) But I don't think you can make fun of yourself the way he does and be full of it as well. Like the details from the thing where he's cameoing with Atom Egoyan: a man whose head is bloated doesn't mock himself that way.

Maybe it's because he says things tongue in cheek, and people take them at face value?

Or even if they don't, they come away knowing a little bit more than they did before. I've been fascinated by that war ever since a teacher, way back when I was 15 (which was quite some time ago!!!) described her grandfather going in a unit, of whom only he and one other came back. The scale of the whole thing was just so extreme that I've come back to it again and again. But I know there are people who really have little concept of just how devastating it was, especially younger kids who are not taught it and don't have someone in the family anymore, like Gross' grandfather, who was there.
