The autobiography of which the film is based on was originally published under the name 'Through the Valley of the Kwai' (and later as 'Miracle on the River Kwai') and then when this film was made, the same as this film's title ('To End All Wars'). This book also acted as a basis for David Lean's The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957). See more »
The Japanese vehicles are shown as left-hand drive vehicles. Japan has always driven on the left and, unless they acquired captured US (LHD) vehicles, they would have driven right-hand drive vehicles. During the Second World War both Burma and Thailand drove on the left. Thailand still does but Burma changed in 1970. See more »

Wow! Totally surprised that this slipped by my radar
After repeated watchings my rating may go up. I love the movie THE THIN RED LINE and this movie reminded me of it strongly except it did not have the excellent cinematography that film did.
I watched it because I like Robert Carlyle a lot and was not disappointed by his performance or any other of the actors on both sides of the war. The pacing was perfect and the violence was very brutal and sometimes unexpected but effective.
The message it delivered to me made the movie for me. Loving thy enemy. Just realizing that we are all just humans caught up in something we didn't start. I highly recommend this movie if you like a film made with compassion.
