Hacksaw Ridge (15)
Mel Gibson, Australia, USA, 2016, 139’
The extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines and was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honour.
