The World War I victory at Passchendaele, in Belgium, has been seen by Canadians as their country's "coming of age." Half a million Allied soldiers died in the battle. Canadian Paul Gross — whose grandfather fought there — uses an ultra-realistic palette, akin to Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan, to recreate this landmark event in the annals of war.
