Shame is a film containing a very real depiction of war. It is a unique war film in that the focus is not only on the front line soldier, but has detailed insight on the two main every day characters. The film is a dark film in nature, but the director succeeds in giving an accurate representation of the ugliness of war. The "Shame" of the main characters is highlighted throughout the film as a reminder that war can bring out the worst in people. The film is not focused on a specific war, time period, or historical figures. It actually has the goal of capturing the universal effects that war has on people.
