Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You're right. Though I do not think the main protagonist of LoW lacks frailty in the way he deals with conflicts, the way he is depicted means to reflect his fatalism. But that is a consequence, a stance he takes towards life, and not a character flaw. Maybe there is a shortcut in the film narrative which prevents us from making out what led him to be that fatalist.

When through hell, just keep going. W. Churchill
