I believe, most of you may have heard a lot and watched the movie called saving privet Ryan. This movie became very popular even later time. This movie was directed by Great filmmaker Steven Spielberg I do not need to say who is Steven Spielberg. Famous films like Schindler’s List (1993), Jurassic Park, Munich, Ready player one were directed by Spielberg.

Saving Private Ryan is a powerful cinematic experience. A war film that was made in that stand has not been produced after that. Best war films were produced. But can’t equalize to that film’s stand.
This Saving private Ryan movie makes us think of thousands of things. Like a lesson which is included things like Complexity, Difficulty, Boredom of war unbelievably. Unimaginable sad tragic events were added and taken our attention. Like a long-running quest about war. What should be added in order to feel the war is dangerous. All of that is included there.
It can be easy to express Emotions via words. But it is not easy to do that with picture frames.it depends on the ability and talent of the film director. He should be able to make the audience feel the thing that should be focused on. He should be able to handle and use the cameras, film locations, actors, and actresses according to his concept. The thing that can be seen in Steven Spielberg’s film, is he uses those things accurately.
Saving Private Ryan is not a film that is made to say a soldier is a hero. This can be called an exploratory discussion of wars. A masterpiece that left so many things to think of us as humans. In this exploratory, we feel a soldier is a hero. It is right. But there is not a background for us to enjoy and be proud of war except make us feel sorry about the war as humans.
