My Modest Quotes Dedicated To ‘How To Fold A Flag’ Movie

Note: Feel Free To Share Them

How to Fold a Flag (2009) movie makes us think about the true meaning of “home”. Would it mean the place where you were born? The place where you’ve resided the largest amount of time? Or is it merely the place that you embrace in a determined moment, even if you constantly move from one place to another? This film portrays a unique perspective of the word “home”. It shows us that the true home is that one place where you feel surrounded by a warm feeling, where your closest friends and family are ready to help you stand up whenever you fall down. After war, some veterans lose the ability to recognize their true home. For them, life is a constant state of war, they never know what will happen next, and they never know where they’re going next. This is exactly what the film is about.


The soldiers in How to Fold a Flag have lived different circumstances, they were raised in different manners, they joined the army for different reasons, but they all share one common purpose: to defend their flag. This film shows us the power of human beings, and how they can get involved with other beings, which they might not have a single thing in common with.


The film How to Fold a Flag allows the audience to reach behind the typical war propaganda. For a moment, we get to see the true face of war. At some points disturbing and extremely emotional, this film does what is necessary to make the audience understand what the true cost of war is, and the large list of people affected by it.

Those familiar to war can relate to every single event portrayed in this film. We’re shown the grief, desperation, and loneliness of veteran soldiers who have returned home after serving in Iraq. How to Fold a Flag also has a great impact on those audiences who’ve never been in the combat ground. It shows them the real cost of defending political ideals by sacrificing their whole lives, even if they return home, war returns with them.


A shocking dose of cruel, cold reality of war. How to Fold a Flag follows the story of soldiers who are mostly young men of ages below 20 assisting the battlefield. It displays the immense grief of those soldiers and their relatives, who went to war as complete persons and came back with part of them missing. It gives us a realist perspective, and allows us to travel to Iraq to re-live the events that marked these young soldiers for the rest of their lives.
How to Fold a Flag is one the most realistic, shocking and finest war documentaries I’ve had the opportunity to lay eyes on. Just like in war, there’s no censorship, no pleasant memories, no justice, and no happy ending; just raw reality.
