I suppose this film is not banned in Germany,since it takes place in world war 1.the propaganda in it is more moderately like many of the third Reich classics that are probably shown on the lat late show in Germany.that are not on DVD yet. It takes place in 1918,the war is near over.All the Hun boys,as oppose to the dough boys, are on the train for a vacation.They are headed for Berlin'But the problem is that a group of men must stay in the train station just in case they get a call.This is headed by Lieutenant Walter Pratoirius, played by Rolf Mobius.He has to stay their just in case a message to go to the from what happens.So he calls up his girl friend ,who is a red cross nurse, played by Ingeborg Theek ,Inge,to come down to meet him.Once again Kathe Haak plays the head of the red cross nurse as she did in two in a big city.All of a sudden one of the Hun boys goes to Walter and tells him ,I think ,that his wife is sick and he need to see her.So Walter Grants his permission and it causes all the Hun boys except for some, to ask if they can see their love ones.Fritz Kamper plays Hartmann is Glad to see his wife, Berta Drews, and all his children,he gives affectionate kisses in the mouth ,his sons and daughters.Rene Deltegen as Grenadier Emile Sasse, who focuses on his leave in staying all day and night at a bar getting drunk.One ,who I don't know who the actor is, plays a composer who visits his Professor in music,at a music school, to play his composition that he wrote.The professor sees it as successful.One soldier who shows up at to his Girl friend sculptress being angry that she dumped him for her boss,may be?Carl Radatz meets his girl friend and get off and have a nice argument, at the bar ,on some issues with friends,I don't understand German so i might be wrong.One soldier ,played by Baldheaded and fat Ludwig Schmitz, who in 1952 played one of the ministerial men in Abruder Vor Dem Tore, fatter and still shaving his hair.This soldier was in show biz . cause his home is a room and board for entertainers .They are glad to see him.Then Igeborg Theek, finally meets her boy friend at the train station,Walter,they talk about their problems, with her stylish 1938 hair do in a 1918 setting.Eventually every one is called back to waste their time on something they would loose.Fritz Kampers's character would be lat on getting back to the train so, Berta Drew would possibly end up as a widow.The print was pretty good but not digital.Worth watching.0421/21
