In order to answer this question I would have to know which movie version you are talking about. There are several and I am only familiar in depth with one. There was a black and white version in 1930 and another more modern one in 1979. I think there is even a newer one. Please post the question again with which version.

I am only familiar with the 1930 version which remains fairly true to the plot line of the book as it ends with Paul Baumer dead in the field and a butterfly flittering around his hand. Also, the relationships between the boys in the classroom and their lives together in the war are well done in the 1930 version.
