Review

5/5
A poetic tribute to the 1st Maine Heavy Artillery Regiment.
Directed by Daniel Lambert, ‘Company K’ is a documentary drama film that pays homage to the 1st Maine Heavy Artillery Regiment. On June 18, 1864, the regiment suffered the largest loss of men by any Union regiment in any Civil War battle. The poetic narrative is structured in accordance with the spoken poem. A poignant docu-drama that will captivate the audience from start-to-finish.

The 3-minute film opens with a widow admiring her late husband’s regimental cap. The partially-seen widow recites her poem throughout. The film movingly reconstructs the battle and the subsequent fatalities of the men. The emotional poetry provided by the narrator, accompanied with slow-motion cinematography, makes for heart-wrenching viewing. The cast of actors that portray the soldiers on the battle field deliver realistic performances that will keep viewers engaged.

Company K Short Film
Daniel Lambert (Director) has created a remarkable documentary film that is certain to bring a tear to the viewer’s eye. Visually, cinematography is simply astonishing – wrapped up with fine editing and musical soundtrack. ‘Company K’ is a triumphant tribute to the 1st Maine Heavy Artillery Regiment. The poem (recited by an unknown voice-over artist) is equally moving and structured tastefully and with sentimentality. A highly recommended film.
