Derek Jarman's landmark presentation War Requiem gives life to Benjamin Britten's original 1961 orchestral masterpiece and delivers a visually dazzling experience, destined to linger long in the memory.

Interspersed with the poignant poetry of Wilfred Owen, War Requiem presents six intensely emotional movements of heart-breaking and dialogue-free drama, exploring Owen's death-defying battlefield experiences, illustrating war's infinite futility, bloody sacrifice and pointlessness.

Boldly combining archival footage with dramatic performances from Nathaniel Parker (The Adventures of Merlin), Tlda Swinton (Burn After Reading), Sean Bean (Game Of Thrones) and Oscar® winner Sir Laurence Olivier in his final screen appearance, War Requiem is a profound cinema achievement.
