Is It a Good Idea to Recreate War Scenes in Film?

When the film was first released, soldiers who survived the Normandy landings were still alive. Many of the men, who had never-before talked about their war experiences, began to talk about what happened to them.

Family members of D-Day survivors, for the first time, began to get a slight sense of what their loved ones had endured on D-Day and its aftermath.

Do you think it is a good idea to recreate war scenes in a graphic and emotional way? Why, or why not?

Why do you suppose a film like “Saving Private Ryan” helped to make D-Day survivors willing to share their experiences?

Do you think it is a good idea to talk about horrific events which have happened to you, or to someone you love? Why, or why not?

Why do some people have a tendency not to share extremely difficult experiences while other individuals are able to talk about such events?

What does it mean when we “keep it bottled inside?”
