WAR HORSE: A Story of Heart-warming and Unique Friendship




I thought it would be just another typical war-themed story but I was wrong! This movie is actually a story of heart-warming  and unique friendship separated by war and tested by battle – War Horse.

Last night we were at The Podium Cinema 1 for the  Special Screening of the said movie.


About War Horse

“War Horse tells the story of a young man named Albert (Jeremy Irvine) and a horse called Joey. This epic adventure film chronicles the exploits of Albert and Joey after they are separated by war.

The story begins when an English farming family buys a horse not having enough money to pay for it. For the couples Ted (Peter Mullan) and Rosie Narracott (Emily Watson) the horse is nothing but a loss. But their young son Albert is resolute in his decision to tame and train the horse. Albert and Joey become friends, but when the war breaks out the two are separated. Joey is sold and becomes a mount of a British Cavalry officer. The film shows the horse’s adventures and his feats to touch the lives of the people he meets.”

In this film we can see how horses played an important role during war time. There are remarkable sad and funny scenes which I believe you will notice too! It’s a story of bravery, love and hope.

Movie quotes/scenes that I like..

Rose and Ted..

Ted Narracott: “You’ll stop loving me Rose, and I won’t blame you when you do.”

Rose Narracott: “Well. I might hate you more, but I’ll never love you less.”

Here’s another one…

Officer said:   “It’s an honor to ride beside you. Let every man make himself, and his country, proud. Be brave!”

…and another

Grandfather:    “Can you imagine flying over a war and you know you can never look down? You have to look forward, or you’ll never get home…What could be braver that that?
